My Playbook plays with itself!

Whenever I charge my Playbook and leave it on, this happens.  I wrote the time.  The Playbook did the rest!!  Even changing colors.

I've tried a ferrite choke at both ends of the charger.  I've plugged the charger directly into the wall instead of an extension cord.  The ONLY solution I've found is turning it off every night.  If I need to make a note or get an email at night I have to wait FOREVER for it to boot up.  Does anyone know why it's doing this and how can I stop it??


Naughty Playbook

 

Thanks for the help!

Also your socket may be ungrounded or have other electronic devices on the same circuit (breaker) causing interference

I tried your idea last night and, so far, IT WORKED!!!!  I swapped my Playbook charger to my phone and vice versa.  It's funny that the PB charger doesn't work on the PB as well as an LG charger!!  ROFL

 

THANK YOU!!!
