same recurring problem, yes factory resetted. very frustrating. happens randomly whether being charged or not. also has happened when idle for under 5 minutes for me.

trying the lockscreen 'off' setting just in case...

Not sure if you guys has done this yet but have you all tried doing a factory restore on the device?

I'm curious why this is necessary. Some ROMs require a "hard reset" after flashing to ensure correct initialisation of services. Is this what the TPT needs too?

 

I ask as the alternative is worrying ... i.e. that the installation of even "approved" apps from the Market/Store make the device unusable.

@nobiggie,

Thanks for the update

@rickinoz,

I am not sure, however it could be apps running in the background which might cause the hang or this could be caused by the stability of the OS itself.

Would need engineering's feedback on this.

@All,

Engineering have requested a sample unit of this which is hanging after idle. Appreciate if those in the EU region or US region could drop me a note on volunteering to ship their machine in for engineering's investigation.

The issue is more widespread then being thought. I have noticed this issue since I got my tpt.

The tablet just does not want to behave. I have done factory reset twice, tried the pin method many times and even have wiped the cache through recovery menu multiple number of times, but the tablet becomes unresponsive every so often, when the "red light" on the back is still glowing but the screen won't turn on, you have to keep power button pressed for many seconds ~10 to force reboot.
Come on Guys - if you have this issue - RAISE IT.
I am out of my window period for a return, and I also love the digital pen along with all the ports, but I definitely would have considered returning this product for the bugs the software still has.

 

@JameZ - I am willing to send it in, if I am sent another new unit right away, and then the engineeres can test it and fix the issue. I will be also willing for a return if that is possible.

I can send mine in for review.. I have a Xoom that was upgraded to 4g so I am using that more. Another issue is that in some cases, when I use the pen to try and open apps from home screen, it does not work, just finger, until I restart TPT.

Do you have this issue of tpt being unresponsive? If yes, may be jameZ can get your unit to the engineers as you are willing to ship it.
