Everything else is so slow and glitchy that I don't find it versatile enough. Wi-fi makes a huge difference to how long my Alita lasts on a full charge so it's nearly always turned off.
Basically I got it because I love reading with Moon Reader+ but, I started working again beginning of year and I haven't had a chance to read since then. I found this device to be key for taking notes in my meetings and writing my notes when I have to solve problems. I always have it handy. But for sure I love reading, Joe Abercrombie is my favourite author and I love the Malazan series

I hard reseted again and it seems to be working fine again.

Only for taking notes and I had Moon Reader+ but no ebooks in it. I hard reseted again and I didn't install anything. Since it seems to be working fine, I will leave it like this at the moment.

Did you try to install NetGuard and block all connections except those you need? Probably it tries to connect to something while idle

Giving up.... I am going to get a BOOX Nova3. I wasn't lucky this time with this device. It is a nice one though.

I am not giving up yet. Do you think it could be the cover. For some reason something is wrong with it?

Try sleeping it with the button and with WiFi, Google FW and BT all off, with the cover removed.

If you open the cover really fast you should see the sleep screen briefly if the hall sensor + magnet in cover combo is working.

I have found that the cover on mine is faulty, It turns the device on with the slightest movement as it lies on the bedside table. just reaching across and accidentally touching it is sufficient to activate it. I have found that the battery lasts far longer without the cover. The cover incidentally is not particularly well designed or well made.
I am seeking an alternative

Yeah my Ares cover is this way. So much so I have to check it when I close it to make sure it turned off and just incase have it sleep after a 1minute if not touched. I even sent feedback to boyue months ago asking for a setting in the os that we could disable the hall sensor and just use it as a nice case without that feature (this maybe be hardware limited thing though) also when you plug it in to charge make sure to open it and close it once so it does not leave the light on.

The cover for the Mars and t80s is way better designed and doesn't have this issue.

I am on holidays for 10 days. When I come back the battery should still have plenty of charge. Hopefully that's the reason. I just noticed strange behaviours during last months like the Ares not waking up after opening the case and things like that.

The latest upgrade from Boyue seems to have fixed this problem of the cover randomly turning the device on (so far anyway)

That was definitely my problem. I am not using the cover and the battery lasts. After coming from holidays it still had charge.
