Nook on screen hints?

For mother's day, I got my mom a classic nook wifi. My experience is with Sonys (I have a 505, and my girlfriend a 300), but the price was right.

Anyway, today, I get a call from my mom, asking about the on screen hints. She says they seem to randomly pop up, with tips on how to do things, however they cover up the bottom portion of the screen and she cannot get rid of them. What she says is most annoying is that it overlays a portion of the text she's reading, so if she turns the page, she missed part of what was written. Now, seeing as how I do not live there I cannot play with the device itself to see how to get rid of it, and I've so far not had much luck finding anything about this online.

Can anyone point me in a direction on this?

Ok, after a few more hours of digging I found out that they're called "nook tips", and the only way to really get rid of them is to do what ever the tip suggests. This kinda sucks, if you're not interested in the tip.

I don't see them. Is WiFi always on? That could be the problem. Try setting it to airplane mode.

Airplane mode is always on, to conserve battery life. She went months without getting one, but got one on the week ago, and couldn't get rid of it.
