how many times in a day would you hard reset your touch kindle? what have you found to be the biggest causes of delay, freezing, application could not be started?

On an average day: zero times. In an average week: zero times.

Do you keep your WiFi on at all times? Do you keep your battery well charged? What model and brand of cover are you using? Is the screen display itself OK, or are you also having funky screen lines or other visual problems? Is your Touch crammed full, i.e., do you keep a LOT (over 2000) of books onboard, or many audible books?

Have you checked to see if you have a book "stuck" in a perpetual indexing loop?

My Touch froze once, and I got the 'Application could not be started' message once. Both occurred back in November, and I haven't had any issues since.

Do you have the 5.0.3 update? If so, and you're still having frequent problems, you might want to contact Kindle support for help.

I've had my touch since mid November and not had to reboot once. Either you should send it back or you're using the experimental web browser(something I never do because it is an ereader and it's small brain isn't designed to be used for surfing)and should stop using it.

If the Kindle touch wasn't meant to be used for anything other than reading, then the web browser and the MP3 player wouldn't be on there at all.

Edited because I used 'than' instead of 'then'

I don't have the Touch, I have the K3, but I do find that my K3, when it freezes, is more likely to freeze when I'm using the experimental browser than at any other time. It doesn't freeze every time I use the browser, but that does seem to make it more likely, particularly if I'm on a site that's not optimized for mobile browsers. Still, having to reset every day, even once a day, seems really excessive. So either there's something really odd going on that can be "cured" (maybe a stuck indexing) or the particular device is a lemon and should be exchanged.

How do you do a hard reset on a Kindle?

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 12, 2012 4:35:19 PM PST
Not sure about other Kindles, it might be the same, but on a Kindle Touch, you hold down the power button for thirty seconds, then release the button and let it reload.

I have roughly 1000 books on the kindle, and I keep the wifi off unless I am actively syncing to download. I do not shop from the kindle unless I am looking for a specific title. I am not using a cover or screen protector. I have averaged at least 5 hard resets a day for the last 4 days. And tonight it took me an hour to move 25 books into collections. Argh! But I did find some helpful information about connecting the usb cable to my computer and checking for an indexing issue( I have not used the usb cable except to charge at an outlet). I will try that tomorrow; and if it doesn't work will be working with customer service.
