playbook operating on own when plugged in


Just got the playbook. When I have it on and plugged in, it is working on it own at a super

speed. It will go into airplane mode and turn on, go into files on the go, the key pad comes

up clinking both shift keys, tying Aaaqq. Will go into calender for March 28 and April 6th.

Even if I try to overide and "x" it out, it will not. Just keeps going.  I read some postings

and they all refer to outlets.

Well this has happen in all outlets(that I tried) in my house. The last 2 weekends I have

been in 2 different hotels, in 2 different cities, and sitll does it. I like it plugged in when

downloading so I don,'t waste my batterie.

It is like some out there is looking for something. Even was playing with twitter and a game.

Help-Just want to downloads books from the Library.
