Got my MID1024 about 10 days ago. Since the beginning it would not turn on at once: I have to restart it 3, 4, 5 times until it goes to the unlock screen and work. It's like it needs to "warm" before it works. After that, it can't go to sleep mode or it will turn off by itself. I have changed WiFi to "always on" and it seemed to help, but then the battery lasts much less. Grrrrr Now, installed the revorey firmware from Coby, which looked like had a fix for WiFi. Better? It seems. So I left it sleeping and charging overnight, but in the morning it was off. I had to restart it 6 times so it will fully load the OS, but then all my settings were erased and many programs now force close! WTF?!?!?! Anyone experienced this yet? It was working perfectly, and suddenly I lose all my preferences? I can't believe I will have to factory restore the d*mn thing all over again. Hardware or software problem? The only thing unusual running in the background was AVG (although I had disabled live scanning in the preferences). Maybe a software is the culprit?
