I've got the latest firmware on my Forma, and ever since the update, it's not actually sleeping when the cover is closed. It's also been turning the wifi back on and opening up the store on it's own. (And unless a ghost is in my purse playing with it, it really is doing it on its own)

Additionally, I'm having the same issue that a previous poster had with my battery life. Prior to this update, the time I had my Forma hooked to my PC to add/move books from Calibre was enough to keep it at max charge. Now it can be fully charged and be dead/at 1% less than 8 hours later when I go to pick back up in my reading.

This isn't new to 4.14.12777. I remember testing it a while ago. And that it was prompted by something here. But, I can't find the discussion.

I always recommend converting MOBI to epub or kepub as the MOBI doesn't support annotations or dictionary look up. I believe there are also some layout issues, but I don't remember what they were.

I only use Mobi to test very old Kindles. Old mobi, not dual format or really KF8 mobi.
A Mobi converted to AZW3 works best on Kindle and converted to epub works best on almost anything else.
Amazon upload (even for publishing KFX / AZW using KDP) will accept KF8 mobi and give better results than doc or docx (I convert Libre Office sourced docx in Calibre).
Otherwise I can't see that mobi is much use for any ereader since about 2014 if you have Calibre on Linux/Mac/Windows.
