Toshiba Thrive experiencing a few power issues

Toshiba Thrive experiencing a few power issues
The Toshiba Thrive, which is the companies first attempt at an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet, is said to be already experiencing multiple power issues amongst many users.

The power management issues are seemingly widespread, with many owners of the Toshiba Thrive said to be dealing with a device that doesn’t always like waking up after its put to sleep. When the tablet refuses to wake up, a hard reset is required to get it working again.

Another problem many users seem to be having is the Thrive rebooting all on its own. Surely many devices have bugs when they first come out, but Toshiba experienced other production issues with its Folio 100 tablet last year.

Any Tablet Thrive owners experiencing any power management issues? Toshiba is yet to issue a statement but if more problems we may just get one eventually. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

Sounds like the typical android experience. Gotta match the garbage hardware with the garbage software.

You mean like the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad are SOOO perfect right? iPhone 4: Have to hold it a certain way just to make the f**kin' thing work. Apple denies their problem but gives away cheap pieces of rubber for a little while before discontinuing the giveaway. This forces new iPhone 4 users to buy that piece of trash and give Apple more money instead of Apple just fixing the issue. iPod touch: The 4th gen version is PLAGUED with bugs such as light leakage (which eventually gets worse the more you use it), bad speakers, and the Home button not working. I sent my own iPod touch 4th gen back to Apple, not only did they f**k the back up with scratches (that's another thing...the back's practically made out of marshmallows it's so easy to destroy), they claimed nothing was wrong and sent it back wrapped in paper where it could easily be broken by careless UPS handlers. It STILL has the Home button problem. iPad: Light leakage and bad screens all over the place. Again, Apple won't admit. So yah...your iDevices are perfect, aren't they? By the way, Toshiba just released an update tonight that fixed the problem. :3 Apple will never ever do that because they KNOW you'll just waste more money on the next iPhone anyway.
