    Excellent info here.
    I'm also annoyed with this issue, so I'm glad to see it being addressed.

    I've started by turning off my sync, and will follow up with a factory reset if I don't see any change.

    I spoke too soon it seems.

    After having my tablet remain on standby successfully all night and most of this morning, I've now just checked it again and it would not wake up so it was another reboot. Crap. Really thought it was resolved. Something must be causing it to hang.

    We'll get to the bottom of this yet!

    Hi danlemon33.

    I'm not sure what you mean here. Are you saying that you've had this same problem with your A500 resetting itself and or shutting itself down and by removing the SD card it's fixed it?

    Many thanks

    No change here.
    Mine still goes into sleep of death randomly.

    I know I could start messing with other ROMs than the stock one, but I have little interest in that level of tinkering on these things.
    I've ordered a couple of new tabs to try. I think it's time to move on.

    Maybe you have a faulty power switch,the tab should not require extended pushing of the power ,5 to 6 seconds is enough.I had a similar problem on my device,so I sent it back to ACER service centre,and they replaced the switch and I have not had any more issues.

    A500 and A510
    I was having a similar problem reported here. After going idle, or switching to standby, I would have to hold the power switch down first for about eight seconds, then three seconds before it would switch back on. This happened after the update to pics. I reset to factory default, and this did not eliminate the problem, although I did reinstall many apps so it was not really a clean system. I also tried removing the SD card but the problem occurred anyway. The last thing I tried that so far seems to have worked (for 24 hours anyway) is switching my Wi-Fi to go off and stay off when powered off even when connected to the adapter.

    Keeping fingers crossed.

    Thanks to all who have provided info here. It has given me lots to try, and I know I am not alone in this.

    There a many possible causes for system hangs. Have you read and tried the suggestions in this post #9 in this same thread: New A500, Keeps turning itself off?

    Have you tried the Factory data reset? It best to test that by disabling the google backup/restore when you first log in after the reset so apps don't automatically reload. Test to understand how the tablet works prior to installing any apps or setting up email and sync.
