@therobyouknow : about your problem number 3. if it is the same thing than me, this can easely be worked around. If you use Avira Antivir as an antivirus, it conflicts with the cybook odyssey and forces it to disconnect. Just stop your antivirus app when you connect your odyssey and it will work just fine. Note that it doesn't happen with sophos antivirus.
About your problem number 2 : I experience the same thing. I imagine it to be related with the touchscreen technology : maybe it perceives sometimes the event "mouse in" without the event "mouse out".
