Here's a quick query for users of this fantastic PB360 port of FBReader:

I use the wrist turn feature only occaisionally - when I can be sure the reader is held in a stable horizontal (me sitting) or vertical (me lying) position that prevents unintentional page turns (if I lie on my side, as I often do before sleeping, the position of the reader is not good for using the wrist turns).

But my question is this: after using the wrist turns only for some time, the program seems to 'go to sleep' - by that I mean it stops responding to wrist actions and I have to do a button push page turn to get it to 'wake up' - anyone else encounter this?

In addition, if this 'sleep' issue doesn't occur, eventually my keypad auto-lock times out and the device locks the keypad. I know the obvious solution is to switch this auto-lock setting off for the device, but I like it (when I put the device aside I know after 5 minutes or so it will lock the keypad). I was wondering if it's possible to have the wrist pageturns trigger the device so that the auto-keypad lock timer resets and prevents this (minor) problem? Again - anyone else encounter this?

But these minro glitches aside, I love this program and use it mainly for the advanced settings features that truly allows the reader to tailor how a book is displayed - something all those corporate phoney programs like ADE and even Mobi Reader don't do. Keep up the great work!!
