I've only encountered the sleep bug once, and I just did a hard reset. Other than that it has been fine so far. Did the OTA update do anything?

I restored back to factory defaults, with no update, still had the sleep bug. The CS guy at Toshiba tried denying the issue, then I told him to see if there was a bulletin out on it, and sure enough, there was. I asked if there was an ETA out for a fix, he said their "engineering department was hard at work coming up with an update to fix it". If the DEVs here on this forum can fix a sleep bug in a day, why hasn't Toshiba been able to figure it out?!?
That is not the only con of this tablet however. It has a plastic/acrylic screen of some sort. It's not glass, and certainly not gorilla glass. I took mine back just over an hour ago and went back to the Iconia. IMHO for the money ($30.00 less), and feature set, it's the best one out to date.
Like I said, it's just my opinion, please don't anyone take it personally.

I don't know, no excuse for that really. I don't mind the screen, but I do wish it was Gorilla Glass. That would be awesome. The Iconia feels cheaply made in my opinion, and that is just from messing around on it at Best Buy. I've handled every tablet, and besides the Touchpad (ugly shaped IMO), that is the only one I really don't like the make of. It also feels heavier than the Thrive, which I don't mind, but it is. As for the opinion, as long as you're not saying it's **** because you couldn't figure out how to turn it on (and provide an actual reason), I don't think many care.

I agree, the hp touchpad is ugly, the concept designer should be shot, because its not sexy.

Also I agree, need some hardened facts. I am going to be picking mine up between this friday and next saturday. Execellent mini scam to get 20% off at best buy.

From what I understand, it is a processor limitation of Tegra 2 (no support for hardware acceleration of h264 high profile video).

About the Toshiba Thrive Screen Material...
One of our Thrivey friends over at Thriveforums.org put up a video as a screen test using a key. It help up just fine, no protector, so whether it's gorilla glass or not, This stuff will keep your screen safe!

So, over at the Thrive forums they seem to have successfully tested the bootloader and it is not locked. (Just like Toshiba promised.) Apparently we just need a recovery kernal and we should be set. [URL= http://www.thriveforums.org/forum/toshiba-thrive-development/]Here[URL] is the forum. If we could get a dev like kousch or a on RA for help on recovery it would be awesome. It would also be much appreciated if anybody who wants one check out my thread for a thrive sub-forum.

The sleep bug issue is forcing me to return the Thrive. I like the device a LOT, but nine out of ten times I have to power the device down and power back on when it goes in sleep mode.

If I turn the display off and then back on within a few seconds- no problem, but when the device goes into a sleep state- it does NOT wake back up when pressing the power button. Keeping music running is too impractical and hurts battery life, since that is not the only thing that will load in the background, being Android.

Best Buy is getting returns due to the issue, so it can not be helping the launch. You would think that Toshiba would mention the issue and a fix is coming- to reduce returns.

The Thrive is sweet, but right now, a nasty a$$ sleep bug is ruining that sweetness.

Ironically, that is my review and I am returning the Thrive due to it not wanting to come out of sleep mode when pressing the power button

Good stuff. Maybe XDA will see this and give us our own SUB. If not, maybe we should start getting development SUBS on the Thrive site.
