    My screen seems to be locked in the portrait position. If the app requires landscape, it forces it, but otherwise it's portrait. This is generally ok as most of what I want to do is portrait ... but it's not right.

    This was happening prior to the 3.1 update ... and I had hoped the 3.1 would fix it. I was wrong. :(

    Yes, the screen lock button is 'off' (not red). Yes, I've tried pushing it to red just to see.

    Any other ideas?

    EDIT:

    Hrmmmm ... rebooted (for the third time since the update), opened a bunch of applications (to test the scrolling open app list) and it magically started working again ...

    You use portrait mode most of the time?

    Yeah, most of the puzzles/games I like force portrait. I almost prefer internet browsing in portrait mode as well (I can see more of the page).

    Yes, I'm weird, it's a known fact! ;-)

    I'm glad you got the problem fixed. It must have just been a system error or something.
    For future reference, when something suddenly begins acting weird on the tablet start by restarting and if that doesn't work and its a serious issue, try a factory reset. If those don't work, then its something more serious :(

    I must have hit that switch accidently. Until I read your post, I thought my tablet was busted!! I thought the switch locked the volume, not the screen. Now I know. Thanks!
