The problem (reboot on sleep) is with the suspend code and has been fixed by a kernel dev, guevor.

Other stuff like screen flicker is caused by bugs in the proprietary NVIDIA blob that runs in userspace, so we have to wait for upstream.

If you have a rooted TF, just flash guevor's kernel and it will become stable again.

A more accurate assessment would be "one of the problems", I think. We don't know it was the only one, for sure. The problems are too intermittent to state that with any certainty.

I have also read a few posts where poeple are still have issues, even on that kernel, so I'm not yet convinced the problems are fixed.

I'll stick it out with Honeycomb until I know for sure this time! I actually need to use my device and not use it as a test bed for the OS any more...

What's keeping Asus from delivering an update to fix this issue?

My TF101 is not rooted, and I don't want to ! (for now, as long as Asus keeps updating this model)
So, still waiting for an official update

Question No more SOD with sound ON ???
I'm also having issues with "Sleep Of Death" since the .21 update.
Note: my tablet is always plugged to the Dock.

I've tried the following methods, but none have worked:
- uninstall Google Chrome
- "force GPU Rendering" for 2D applications (in developper menu)
- "disable" wake-up by dock/keyboard
- Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep

HOWEVER, I suspect a strange behavior with sound/vibrator: Sound was still ON during night (by mistake) and no SOD happend during that night.

Since this day, I've tried:
- putting the tablet sound "OFF/vibrate": at least one SOD per day + battery drain
- putting the tablet sound "ON, minimum volume": no more SOD for 4 days and battery life seems much longer.

=> I'll PM Gary Key if more information/help is required.

Me too... don't want to root whilst the tablet is still supported...

I echo everyone else's comments about wake lock.... you can use it as a workaround for the random reboot and sod problems... the downside is the battery drain... it doesn't seem to be too excessive... I've gone from charging once every 3 days to every other day... so battery life is still usable

Wake lock will tide me over till the official asus fix comes out.
