Anyone having problems coming out of sleep mode?

I hit the power button (in sleep mode), and nothing appears to happen. I then hit the power button again, and the device wakes up (shows the page with the light on), but than goes right back to sleep.

It is very intermittent. It happened twice today, but I have also gone several days without it happening.

Glo HD. 4.12.12111. Calibre generated kepubs.

I've noticed in the latest firmware that occasionally there is a very long delay (1-3 seconds?) between when I hit the power button and when something happens. If not patient, and you hit the button more than once, you may end up waking it up and putting it back to sleep immediately (or vice versa). Sometimes the delay is much longer than 3 seconds. This might have something to do with the contents/structure of the current book being read.

Occasionally. I press the power button briefly at exactly the wrong moment, and the device thinks I was holding it down and turns itself off completely.

Normal way of embedding fonts into epub doesn't work in kepubs.
For example: embedding font into h1 tag won't be recognised in kepub.
workaround:
Code:
<span class="font"> Text </span>
only workaround will work

Device: Kobo Clara HD
Product: Kobo Clara HD
Firmware: 4.12.12111
Plugins: None
File types: –
Sideloaded or from Kobobooks: Kobobooks
On external SD:
Steps to reproduce:
  1. Try connect to any wi-fi in China, that is behind the great Chinese firewall
Current result: I cannot connect to any Chinese wi-fi that doesn't have a built-in VPN, or that is simply not able to access the "http://www.kobo.com/buildinfo.xml." file to check if connection works. When I connect to wi-fi, it gets stuck for some seconds and then throws an error.
Workaround: Adding this to the KoboReader.conf file:
Code:
[FeatureSettings]
IgnoreCaptivePortal=true
Fixes the problem.

This isn't a bug in the firmware. It is by design and works as intended. Maybe Kobo is being overly cautious in doing this check, but, the check and turning off WiFi when it fails is not a bug. The workaround has been in the firmware since 4.9.x.
