Did a reset and now it gives me 4 bars again... Strange, though. 'Cause earlier I charged it fully through USB (as indicated by the charging light turning off), then performed a soft reset and it was still stuck at 1 bar. Let's see how it goes now.

Glad it seems to be behaving itself now. Hope it keeps it up.

I think we can reasonably form the conclusion that this is a generic problem with the upgrade. I suspect that what may be happening is that, following the upgrade, the battery meter is regarding its charge state at that time as being "fully charged" and refusing to go any higher. Certainly seems that a soft reset is required to sort it out.

ditto. I did a full recharge/reset right before the update, now the bar remains where it is. soft reset seemed to have fixed the battery meter here too. how many of you charge with the usb cable and how many of you charge with the ac adaptor?

Have you done a soft reset, WilliamG? That should fix the problem.

I was curious, I was back down to 2 bars...... so I plugged in for charging, light went out..... was still down to 2 bars............. uggggggggg, anyway, did a soft reset for mine as well and now it's reading full.
Sure takes a long time for the thing to boot up, I was starting to think it was frozen there for a second!!!

Aren't you glad you don't have to do that boot up thing every time you want to read?

Not yet. No doubt it will fix the problem. Was just adding that I experienced the problem, too. Yay Sony! :P

That's why I'd never buy something like a Tablet PC for reading - imagine having to go through the lengthy Windows boot cycle every time you wanted to read something . I know there's a "suspend" feature but I've never really trusted that - when I use it with my laptop it always seems to break things.

I wonder if we have to do a soft reset with each update they give us? Actually that might be something we have to do once an update is received. What do you guys think?

Probably just as well to do one just to be on the safe side. Only takes a minute to do.
