I never said I had the problem. You asked if anyone else had this problem. With all the millions sold I said probably someone else has had this problem.

Try rebooting the Kindle. Hold the power button on for 30 seconds and then hit the power button again. See if it reboots.

It could be going to sleep. You can change the sleep timeout under settings.

You may be inadvertently tapping the power button and putting it to sleep yourself.

You may be combining a magnetic cover and a metal surface.
