Playbook randomly Turns off



After the latest software update, my Playbook now randonly turns itself off. This usually happens when i put it into standby, but also happens while using it. When it happens, it goes through the proper shutdown process as though i have pressed the off button?

Any Ideas anybody?

Re: Playbook randomly Turns off

Touch the battery icon > Restart.
Watch over the next couple of days if this mysterious self shutdown continues and if so please post back here. You may need to debrick the device and reload the new OS fresh.
