System does not boot after shut down

I installed the 2... Version yesterday and I could not boot the software after I shut it down. There was also always a light on the display. When the battery was empty I was able to start it again but it took a long time.

Re: System does not boot after shut down

I'm also experiencing this on playbook OS 2.0.


Can't there be a feature directly on the hardware (not on the QNX kernel level) that can force the device to turn off once the OS stalls during shutdown? Maybe detect if a SHUTDOWN command is called and start a 2-3 min countdown from there?

Re: System does not boot after shut down

You can try pressing all Power, Volume Up and Volume Down button at the same time for a long time, over 15 seconds, to force a reboot.
