E2 won't power on, opens random apps
My E2 has been having problems as of late. Today, I was using it as my Bible at church (like I do each Sunday) when it suddenly didn't want to come on (yes, it was charged). I had to soft reset it several times to get it to come on and STAY on for more than one minute. Later, it wanted to stay off again. So I reset again. Now, it's just opening random programs for no reason. I tap on Calendar, it switches me to the last program.
The weirdest thing that happened was when I was trying to turn it on a minute ago, and the screen stayed off but Bejewled 2 (the last app I had been running) was apparently running b/c I heard its music in the background. Is this a software glitch? It's been having problems w/ the charger but that is to be expected with this model. I haven't installed any new apps lately or made any major changes (actually, any changes at all). It seems to be having a mind of its own lately.

Re: E2 won't power on, opens random apps
Are you using a screen protector? Could it have crept under the case and be causing pressure on the digitizer? Try removing it and see if the situation improves. Also fold the corner of a sheet of paper and gently go around the edge of the digitizer to see if any debris has gotten under the case.
If this does not resolve there is likely another hardware failure. Has your E2 been dropped?DT Lives in SFO...away from flying objects.

Don't take yourself too darn seriously.
