That is a good idea. From my experience, it doesn't make a difference, but, the battery on my Glo doesn't consistently drain as fast as you are seeing. I have seen the batter drop more than expected at time, but generally I can relate those to when I was reading a lot.

Is the epub you are loading available anywhere? If it is a free book somewhere, then the rest of us can try.

That is also a good test. Plus if it doesn't cause problems, we should be able to open it and compare to the problem book.

Another interesting test would be to load a book that seems to be causing problems as a .kepub.epub. That would show if it was something ADE was doing on the device.
