I tested that by syncing my Kindle Fire as soon as I closed the PW and it was on the right page almost immediately.
However, it would pay to buy the PW in a brick and mortar store and test the unit's screen before paying for it. There are just too many defective screens being reported here.
Its also possible that it takes a few days for the glue between the screen layers to dry. The units being reported here have probably not been stockpiled for more than a day or so. In a few weeks demand may slacken and the PW's may spend some time in a warehouse allowing the glue to dry. Then the incidence of defects will probably plunge since the glue will be totally dry before shipment.
I don't leave WiFi on all the time so it's a useless feature for me unless it turns it right back off then I would be interested.
