I'm now officially PISSED
So we get a new update. Google Play! YAY! Things seem to move quicker,etc. Then I try to let it sleep. When the Wifi's on, no problem. I hit the button and it promptly continues one from where I left off.
But, I turn the wifi off (with the wifi sleep policy set to never), and let it naturally go to sleep. I hit the button, unlock it, press any app.....and it FREEZES. It hasn't seemed to change. I just want one that works properly. I'm on my second. WTH?!

Search on the Vox forum for "sleep of death" and you will find more details about what is happening to your Vox. It is an Android problem and is not specific only to the Vox...

This "sleep of death" never happens to me. I usually have my Vox in airplane mode instead of having the wifi off, though. Is that what makes the difference? If so, why not just use airplane mode?

Sadly no. Airplane mode and turning wifi off are the same in this case. Only some units are affected by sleep of death and it seems to be a software issue as it comes and goes from update to update for different people with no apparent pattern.
