I wonder which would die first, the battery or the mechanical sliding on/off/sleep switch.
I personally prefer mechanical buttons over touching my screen all the time.
I really want to repeat the request for a low battery warning before the Kobo shuts down. My own preference would be a page turn that brings up a message like, "low battery, please charge your Kobo soon," and nothing else. This way, there is nothing else on the screen to distract me from properly receiving this message, and if my Kobo shuts down while I'm still reading, then I have no one to blame but myself. I'm sure other people would prefer a more discreet message that might involve a bar (10% of screen) across the page they are reading. The important note is that this warning should come while reading, not while navigating menus. Whatever form it comes in, this low battery warning is much desired. Please make it happen.

Reason: add bold
