  1. Ah, Okay. I didn't see it as a listed issue. It eems the tablet doesn't shutdown when the power stays connected. Maybe that helps (and is also already known ;0)
  2. Very nice. Alpha 3 Hung up my Tablet, was unable to restore until I completely drained it and removed all drivers on my windows system. Now I updated to Beta 1 and am very happy. I only have one strange issue: The tablet is often not only going to sleep, but really in shutdown. Even though I do not select it in the menu that pops up right after short pressing sleep. How I enter sleep: Short press Sleep (Menu pops up) tab with finger besides menu Short press Sleep again (Now enters sleep) When I wake up by short pressing sleep button It wakes up if I just put it to sleep. If I wait a couple of hours it just doesn;'t come out of sleep. I have to long press (2sec) the sleep button to actually boot it. Does any1 else have this strange behaviour? That it goes from sleep to shutdown by itself after a longer period of sleeping?
  3. Weeh Pffheewwsss... That took several tries... http://www.myadventvega.co.uk/full_system_...nstructions.pdf Helps... I am glad it works again (even though its not mine that got screwed up..)
