"keep your computer in an active mode while charging" ...

I don't know what went wrong. The Reader has been charging all night (usb to computer), but the charge indicator (red light) does not go off. Why?

Ok, two guesses:
  1. Perhaps your computer switched to standby mode after some minutes and in standby mode the USB-devices will not be supplied with enough power for charging.
  2. In rare cases, when the reader's battery is completely empty, some devices won't charge over USB. (Happens with my Sony PRS-505 too from time to time) Do you have a additional wall charger?

Hi, thank you ever so much for your answer. And yes, you were right: my computer switched to standby mode. And this is my problem. I really don't know how to avoid that (And normally I am not this ignorant). I don't want it to switch to standby. I had to work unabruptedly on my pc for 5 hours the day after in order to charge my Sony Reader.

And, yes, I have an additional wall charger: the one I use with my Mac. I was hoping that this one could be used to charge the e-book as well ...

Another question: I am Norwegian (live in Italy though), and I have bought this e-book to avoid bringing back and forth tuns of books. The problem that I've turned out to be a complete idiot (also) when it comes to downloading books. I wanted some Norwegian and Danish ones. One Norwegian I've bought on www.bokkilden.no. Now I don't know where to find it on my computer. And if I find it, I surely won't be able to get it over to my Sony ..

But I'm proud of my homepage www.casatoscana.no ;-)
