After yesterday, I think maybe I should not take this kindle out of the house in the lighted cover. I had been reading on it, then put it in the padded sleeve in my bag (upright). a minute later I pulled it out to see if I'd turned wifi off and it was in the middle of a reboot. So maybe the upright position puts strain on the hinges. I guess I can either use a different cover or take my other Kindle when I go out of the house. I like the cover, and the skin. I will keep using it around the house etc and see if it behaves better.

Well there goes my theory. The Kindle is sitting on the shelf next to me with no cover, it was on, but I hadn't touched it in a few minutes, and it just spontaneously re-booted. Do I have a bad Kindle? I got this one last summer. It's only begun having this problem recently.

Anything is possible. If I were you, I'd make sure all of my content was backed up, and try a Factory Reset (which will delete all of your content). Then just add a few books back in and see if it keeps misbehaving. If it's OK for a week or so, I would assume the problem fixed and re-add the rest of your content.

I called Kindle support and the guy told me to leave it out of the lighted case and use it for 2 days, then he will call me back and follow up with me. First he had me do a hard reset. So I'll use it and see how it does.

update: cs never called back. In the meantime I moved some things out of active archives. That really didn't make a difference. I am still getting random reboots. Yesterday I was reading (wifi off) and it suddenly rebooted. When it came back up, archives were 0. I didn't turn wifi back on til this morning. It is on a shelf next to me. Archives came back up, downloaded my news, and went to sleep. I noticed it rebooted while in sleep mode. No reason.

I would definitely call Kindle support and see if they will replace it.

Ok they are replacing it. I am still not sure if the cover caused the problem or not. It didn't experience any rebooting problems until after I started using it. I guess I can use the cover on my out-of-warranty K3 wifi and see if anything bad happens (eek)
