Perhaps my device is faulty? Sometimes, I can be typing along fine on the keyboard, and suddenly, the taps stop registering. Anywhere. Then after waiting a while, it starts responding again. Let me ask this: does anyone else have to leave their HD powered off for a while before restarting? If I power down and restart immediately, my touch screen won't work. Can't even unlock the slider. But if I turn it off and leave it off for a bit before powering back up, everything is fine.
You got a defective one from the sound of it...time to call Kindle Support for a exchange.
