Screen ghosting

I am new to the Kindle thing with the K2 and I notice that, after waking the K2 you can still kinda see the deceased author (until I change to the next page) and at the bottom, I can still read the thing that says to toggle the button to wake the kindle (and it does not get better when change the page)

Yeah. You can get rid of it by hitting the menu button and then hitting it again.

It's nice that there is a 'solution', but the fact that I manually need to do this every time the K2 wakes from sleep is annoying.

Supposedly the latest firmware update fixes this by making page turns cause a full screen refresh... It doesn't look like that update has been widely distributed yet though...

A full refresh every page turn would be great, providing it doesn't adversely effect the page turn delay.

Supposedly firmware version 2.02 fixes this ghosting which really isn't ghosting. What it is si that the screen is not properly refreshing after waking from sleep mode.

It's annoying to always have to use the Alt-G.
