Aura One: standby mode

I have an Aura One now but the sleepcover is still on pre-order.

The manual says you put the device in standby and awaken it with the button at the back. Yet sometimes it seems to spontaneously awaken when I take it from the table, or to have been awoken and go to sleep when I take it from a bag.

What would this be? Is the button at the back so hypersensitive that you risk setting it off if you put the device in a bag? Or will the sensor that is used for the backlight settings also be used by the sleepcover -- and is *that* so sensitive that it sometimes responds to movements or changes of light? In the sense that it makes the device wake up?

In any case, do other users have the same experience?

(Just curious, not really worried about battery life or anything. Though it would be annoying if the device starts to spontaneously browse through a book I'm reading while it's in my bag!)

Is Settings --- Sleep and Power ----sleep cover ---checked on or off? If you are not using a sleep cover, the box should not be checked. I've had that happen to various Kobos, when the box is checked, but not in a sleep cover.

I had mysterious waking and sleeps with my Glo before getting a cover for it. It too me an embarrassingly long time to realise that it was because I was putting it down on my iPad which was in a cover. If I put the Glo on the iPad in the right position, the magnet in the cover was was triggering the sleep and wake in the Glo.

Other than something like that, I don't know. I doubt the light sensor is being used as that would be using some power all the time. The button being sensitive is a possibility. If I had one, the position of it would make it likely for it to be touched if it went into my bag. And I suspect I'd hit the button when pulling it out of the bag.

Thanks, the sleep cover setting was checked. I assume that was the reason and will report back only if the phenomenon persists now.

Thank you for this tip. Mine was enabled for sleep cover as well.

I had this kind of problem when putting my reader on metallic shelves (I have my main library on industrial type metallic shelves in the attic "maid room", and was checking on the calibre catalog which ebooks I had so I could get rid of the paper equivalents.)

LOL, I do things like that all the time. That could explain why my current Aura sometimes has the light on with the sleep cover closed.
