Auto Shutdown Feature??

Well I borrowed my fathers 500 for a week to see if I would like it better then my Iliad....which I really do!

The size is the best thing for me....much better on the 500....

So I bit the bullet and got a 505 yesterday. I must say I love the size of it. Also like the fact that when I boot it up, it only takes a few seconds at most VS 30-45 seconds for the Iliad.

The one function that the 500 had that I cannot seem to see on the 505 is the auto-sleep function. If I left the 500 turned on and didn't touch it for a bit it shut itself down.....the 505 doesn't seem to do that.

Am I missing something?

You have to go to the Settings menu to turn it on. It's probably off by default. It goes into sleep mode after 60 minutes.

Ok that is turned on. Is there a way to shorten it to 15-20 min vs 60?

You're aware that with eInk, it's the page turning itself that uses the power, not the displaying of a page once it appears?

I know. I just prefer to not have to worry about random key presses also.

I'm not sure if there is or not, but I'd expect it to be on the same menu if it's available.

You can just turn the device off manually if that's annoying you

I just use the slider on top to put it in stand-by mode when not reading. That will prevent random key presses.
