Lockup when reading + charging
I love my Glo, but have an annoying glitch and was wondering if others have run into it.
The Glo is rock solid, I've read a ton of books on it so far and the ONLY problem I've run into is if I try to read while it is charging it will lock up every dozen or so pages.
This has been very consistent, and has occurred reading both sideloaded and kobo purchased books.
When it locks up I can't even turn off the backlight so I hold the power switch until the backlight goes out then release and hold it again for a few seconds and it will reboot at which point I can continue reading until it locks up again (or like tonight just give up and let it charge)
I've had this happen when charging from a laptop, using the Vox wall charger and using an apple usb charging cube, so I no longer suspect the charger, but an issue with the reader...
Anyone else seen this behavior?

Not already tried to read while charging. I bought it at the beginning of the month, charged it fully and never had to charge it again, though reading a lot (7 boks of about 300 pages each, plus one on the go) with or without the light on (but without wifi on). The battery states 59% full at the moment. When time will come to charge it, I'll try reading in the same time and let you know if your problem is still not fixed.

My kobo Glo just locked up when trying to play Sudoko. After trying a few things with no success I found a small hole at the base. I poked a pin in here and could feel a switch move. After holding the pin in for a few seconds the device rebooted with everything back to normal. Brian
