Default Ghosting/image retention problems, but only for a little bit?

The problem:

I will leave my tab unattended for several hours for reasons such as sleep or work and then come back to turn on my tab. I'll start typing or replying emails and then I will go to the settings via the notification bar. Then I see my keyboard being ghosted in the gradient background for about 10 seconds. I continue to write my emails and hit settings back and forth quickly to see if it persists, and it does.

But after a couple on/off flicks over the course of half an hour to an hour, the ghosting will stop....such that I write an email in the same fashion as before and then hit settings but I won't see the ghosting off the keyboard.

Had anyone experienced the same phenomenon?

I have also. It takes a minute or two then it fades away. My desktop widgets and icons really show up when I slide over to a blank screen.

I don't have this, and judging from other comments, this seems to be mostly limited to the IO/preproduction versions. Might want to go for an exchange.

Edit: but a few hours? I'm not sure.

I am having this issue but mine doesn't seem to go away. Actually my unit seems to ghost one image on top of another making it extremely irritating after some use. I have the retail Nexus 7 8GB unit and using it around 25% brightness.

I have contacted google with no response yet and a representative from ASUS who hasn't responded yet.

My nexus 7 16gb prurchased from walmart has ALL of the issues reported. I have light led bleeding on the top of my screen, I have touch screen unresponsiveness and now I am having ghosting issues.... how cheap did ASUS make this thing ?.? This is my first ever tablet and I am thouroughly dissapointed, I love Google but this is unacceptable
