I agree with afv011 that you should be fine. I wouldn't reboot it unless you see that you have to.

Your situation is almost the exact opposite of mine - I have found that connecting my Nook to the computer is the BEST way for me to fix the rapid draining problem.

However, I will agree that once I have the Nook working OK, I don't like to do anything to it (like connecting it to the computer to copy files), for fear it will get confused again! You could wait till you almost need a recharge to connect to the computer and copy the files. That's kind of what I do - when I have recharged my Nook and then connected it to the computer to top it off, that's when I do any file copying I want to do. Yes, it is a pain to have to worry about this stuff!
