Rebooting

To reboot you just hold the on/off button to shut down and then restart correct? Or is there another way?

Thanks. I was wondering if there was an easier way I wasn't aware of.

It's like that with most Android devices.

My old LG Optimus V was able to be rebooted holding the power button and up volume button at the same time. Pressing any two buttons on the Fire is not possible as you know

Under the "docs" on the Kindle fire, there is a Fire Users Guide...
On the very first few pages is a section called "Kindle Fire hardware"
In that section it tells the 3 ways to turn off the Fire.
1) press and release. for "sleep mode"
2) Press hold till you get the message to shut down. to "turn off"
3) Press and hold for 20 seconds... release after it shuts down...
then press to turn on again. This is recommended for when/if
the device becomes unresponsive.

I also use this when I install a new app that does not appear to be behaving properly.

Were we supposed to READ the Users Guide?

You are supposed to key "reset" in morse code on the on/off button.
