Happy New Year or Welcome to a weird midnight TouchPad Bug

[sc:mobile-category ]So new years came the other night to find use once more forging directly in to the future.

For me, it is just another night and I was watch some TV while playing on my TouchPad when midnight rolled around.  Shortly there after I put the TouchPad down and turned it off (or put it to sleep really, not an actual power off).  About 30 seconds later, the screen lit up all by itself.

“Well that’s weird” I thought to my self and shut it off again.

Once more it powered back to life a few seconds later.

After repeating this a few more times I figured out that when the clock ticked over to the next minute, the TouchPad came back to life.

I don’t know if it was a bug in the OS or some of the software I have installed, but either way I decided the best way to deal with it was a hard boot.

Once the TouchPad was back up, all was good and we both had a good nights sleep Winking smile.
