Problem with stand by

We have an odd problem with our Playbook.


When we switch into stand by mode, using the power button will not restart the device.


To start the device we have to plug in a power source, then simply touching the screen will bring it out of standby.


Anyone any ideas?

Hi br14,

Some PlayBooks have power button that is pressed with difficulty. Maybe this is your issue.

To quick wake up your PlayBook swipe from one bezel to another.
