Device: Pocketbook 912
Unhappy PB912 restarts itself

Hi, I purchased the Pocketbook 912 in October 2012, and it always worked properly. After a few months I upgraded the firmware to version 2.1.3 with no problems.
Now, from a few weeks, once in a while the device restarts itself, as if it were turned off and on. No warning, no message, no apparent reason.
Does anyone has ideas about the cause?
This behavior seems to happen more frequently day by day, and it's annoying. What can I do?
thanks

Maybe a dying battery?

I don't know. The battery level seems to be normal, and doesn't change after these restarts. The charging holds up as usual.

Perhaps there is an ebook on the device that causes problem when the library index is being constructed. You can disable the indexing via Settings->Advanced_Settings->System->Library->Library_Data_Update. See if your resets stop happening. If so, you'll have to find the book that is the problem and remove it.

Otherwise, if you have WiFi available and aren't afraid of the Unix command line, you can install my utelnetd daemon and log in to the device from a PC while you're reading with it. You can monitor various things (kernel messages, free memory, CPU usage) to see if something stands out. Hopefully, it's a software issue rather than failing hardware.
