Read all the articles of the "Knowledge Base" , did all the "tricks'... Still is not working...
FYI... I downloaded very few apps 12 to be exact, 6 were preinstall or installed during OS update..
I only use my Playbook to check my personal email, facebook, twitter, browse the web, read the news. I'm not an IT geek/nerd...
I'm just a "normal person" who bought the product offered for a reasonable price at the Blackberry shop at Houston airport on the way to my thanksgiving holidays, that's only 6 months of total usage.
The battery used to charge 100% and keep me going during the day, never left "to die".
As a consumer, the last 2 months I has been very disappointed with the product.
More disappointing is not finding a credible and logical solution to solve the problem. Seems like the forum is handle by BB fans.
BTW I have no time or energy to discuss any further. I will keep my eyes open to read positive solutions.

“It just works.” <-- this is how all products should be designed and is why apple and other companies are taking much of RIM's previous market share. I'm a 4th year computer engineering student, and if I cant figure it out how is the "average person" supposed to get the thing working? I've also had horrendeous experience with appworld crashing and not allowing me to switch my active device from my playbook to my blackberry phone. Because I was unable to change my active device, I couldn't get the blackberry bridge to download because it said it was "not supported" for my playbook, I WANTED IT FOR MY PHONE NOT MY PLAYBOOK. Anyway, everything and everything has been a struggle with this device, when others simply "just work". The playbook is supposedly made for corporate users and doesn't even handle PDF's correctly and doesn't have any printing functionality (no SD either)

Simple question simple answers. Let us be realistic here if there is no problem with the playbook then this discussion is not existent. Given that this exist and it is still growing then definitely there is a problem with the playbook.
We our talking about the playbook not powering up (allowing batteries to die is not a self inflicted problem it is a natural thing so if the playbook does not power up after discharge then there is a problem with it).. Basically lets go back at the answers in our discussion if this happens try the plug and unplug process if it does not charge call RIM.
We are going on a cycle blaming each other and blaming RIM though some are protecting RIM.
