Need Help with my Nook Color 4 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 0
I use my Nook Color tablet mostly for reading and playing games. When I'm done with it for the day, each night I plug it in to recharge it. In the morning, it always says 100% charged.

Last night after I plugged it in, I decided to read some more so I just left it plugged in while I was reading. After about a half hour, my book disappeared and the screen went blank but was still slightly lit (a dim glow) although the Nook button was not lit and it appeared to be shut off. It was still plugged in, but I couldn't turn it back on or do anything else with it. I gave up for the night and left it plugged in. As of this morning, the screen was still glowing dimly (as I left it last night,) the Nook button was still dark, and I still couldn't turn it back on. I checked it frequently throughout the day today and nothing has changed.

This same thing happened once before about a month ago. After leaving it plugged in for nearly a full day (and checking on it frequently throughout the day,) all of a sudden it started working fine as if nothing ever was wrong with it.

What is causing this and what can I do to fix it when it happens?

I've had other problems with my Nook Color but not this. Sound like software locked up, I think you can just press power button until the screen flashes, then release the power button. That forces it to restart and helps me.
