Makes me paranoid to leave the system with a page displayed on it. That said, if the pixels are electromagnetic and are black or white, if you turn the unit "off," can you burn in a blank screen image?
I have the same question. Yesterday I could have sworn I saw ghosted text when the Reader was off; today, I have to look so hard to see it that I can't tell whether I'm imagining it or not. Is there any information about this?
