FYI, I'm also waiting. Don't like the auto power off and want to keep my cover when I do turn it off.

That would because the USB ports are switched off to save power whilst the notebook is in hibernation or suspend. So instead of charging the battery being connected to the computer resulted in the Kobo discharging its battery.

So my Kobo reader is stuck at this step for an hour or so, with the blue light flashing. I had the 100 preloaded books and one pdf document on the device, so when do i start panicking, exactly?

I think i already am!
Is there something I can do?

Thanks for the details. The more open a company is to their customers, the more loyalty and feeling of engagement the customers will have towards the company. So few companies seem to understand this.

Wow--this thread is sooooo old--like from that big messy Kobo update back in July 2010. I am not sure why it came up again, but there is NO current update out there that is requiring this now.
