thanks for the suggestions.
I'm mainly using Calibre as an offline repository for fanfic and I'm using FFDL to download books as epubs. I have two pdf only books (and have already used count pages on them), all the others (some 2300 books) have epub formats. I use epub as the default format.
Your laptop may have grown (looks like lint ) cooling issues and overheats on long crunches.
or the inactivity power management may have kicked in (er..Out)
