Not sure if this is the same issue but my sister updated her KT from 2.1.1 to 2.1.4 using the automatic upgrade. What she noticed was that when she woke up the KT from the sleep screen, the KT would restart after 0 to 5 page turns. We tried the sign out but didn't help -- possibly since we re-setup her account using the WiFi connection. After a factory reset and watching her "Processing Content" for a few minutes, seems to be okay now.
My KT did not show this problem but I did a factory reset before updating to 2.1.4. I thought that since I have had issues with corrupted books, it was worth the extra time for the factory reset to ensure I started with a clean database and without the manually installed 2.1.1 firmware possibly causing issues.
Both our KT's got the 43710 update revision and side-loaded content is living on an SD card.
This message is subject to change after using the KT/2.1.4 for a couple of days to see if the restart after sleep has really gone away.
