Welcome to MobileRead, Brenden.

Hopefully someone nook-knowledgeable will post soon with an answer...

Have you tried doing the hard reboot? You hold the power button down for 20 seconds and it will do a restart. What about if you turned the power off over night? Does this help, or does the problem come back?

I'm not that tech savvy, so if these don't help, I'd take it back or at least call.

I just opened up my nook after not using for awhile and have the same exact issue. Did you find out what was wrong with it and how to fix it?

If the Poe screensaver is one you set yourself (as opposed to the default), you might try setting the screensaver back to the default and see if that fixes it.

I would try first removing that particular screensaver and see what happens. If the problem continues I would be calling tech support.
