Kindle app for tablet never sleep.

Hi. i found out that Kindle app for Honeycomb (asus TF101) makes the screen stay awake. i didnt get this issue in Froyo (Dell Streak)

have anyone else faced this problem? i always read occasionally when doing something else so this is a real battery drainer.

tq~

Some reading apps give you the option to keep screen on while reading.
