It makes sense....

Could it be writing to the card at that time?

I take a lot of cruises so I appreciate the fact that it takes up such little space (I used to need a large bag just for my adaptors).

My setup powers:

My Travel Laptop
3 Cell Phones
AV-100 Camcorder
Gemstar eBook (and Sony eReader now)
iPaq PDA
iPod
Nintendo DS Lite
Digital Camera
SD Card Databank unit (my camcorder is SD based)

and it works like a charm.

Buddyboy: That seems like quite a number of gadgets to bring on a boat. Though am guessing that not everything goes to sea at once. Does iGo have any parallel chargers, or is it once device at a time?

Actually most of that list makes it with me, though usually if I bring the laptop, I don't bother with the PDA or the Databank. And yes, you can charge three items at once with a splitter - the laptop plus any two other items.

Any way to delete the factory-installed book excerpts?

Answer to my earlier question: Delete books, including the factory-installed books, through the Connect interface on the PC. No delete option directly on the Reader itself.

Follow up to the sd card topic:

"Can you list SD card mfg, speed etc.... "

The first card I used was an EP Memory 512MB card, I don't know the speed.
The card currently in the Reader is a Sandisk Ultra II 1GB card.
They both work just fine, now that I know about pulling back out to the menu level.

"Could it be writing to the card at that time?"

I thought about that. I tried inserting the card and letting it sit for 5 minutes or so before trying to power it on. I tried letting it sit for 10-16 minutes after power on as well. I tried the previously reported tip of hitting the 'mark' button to see whether it was powered on, and the blue light did indeed light up.

I'll figure out how to use the forums 'quotes' feature at some point in the future.

During the past week in bed, running a fever, I've discovered that I can hold the Reader through the blanket and turn the pages, all without putting my hand/arm out from under cover.

How many times have I tried, and failed miserably, to do that with a paper book?

(I'm better now -- not all better, but better )

Can't see this mentioned anywhere, but I was reading last night, and found that you can:

1.) Hold down the "size" button to change the orientation of the screen without having to go to the menu to do it.

2.) If you hold down page forward or page back, you'll jump forward or back 10 pages at a time. Nifty!

Oh thank you. I just posted on the wish list about a *back* button because I have a habit by accident of hitting one of those buttons and where I was reading went poof and I had to remember what page or close where I was..., I will have to set a bookmark (safety factor) while I try this little tip.

Probably it is a repeat of those Slava mentioned at the beginning...
If you need quickly jump to the main screen from any place you are, just press and hold the Menu button. For example, it helps a lot when I read a book and want to change the now playing track.

With rtf files at least, apparently when you save a bookmark, it also saves the size (S/M/L). You can even have two bookmarks in the same book with different associated text sizes, which is perfect if more than one person is reading a book from it at the same time.
