Kobo Touch frozen on sleep mode. Second one in two days.

So I got a technology and textbook grant a while back, and I decided what better way to spend it than buying an ereader. After much contemplating between the Kindle, Kobo or the Sony EReader, I opted for the Kobo touch. I got it yesterday, and it worked fantastically. For a few hours.

After it was in power down mode when I went to bed, it started to freeze up and only allow one page turn. Then I had to turn it of, start it again, just to turn one page. So I took it back to best buy. After I did the factory reset and pushed the reset button.

Instead of going and getting the Sony, I thought I'd give the Kobo touch another shot. It worked even better for a couple of hours. Then I put it in sleep.

And it's stuck there. It won't do anything. My computer recognizes it and syncs it and everything, but I can't even factory restart it, or push the pin, or turn it off. It's staying there, with an A List novel cover. I'd love to finish my book.

If anyone has any ways to make it stop, it would be fantastic. Otherwise, I'm taking it back, and probably just canning this entire ereader idea all together.

My original took 3 months before it started doing this. I've had the replacement for 3 months now and I'm just waiting for a repeat. If it does I'm done with Kobo.
