I have experienced the tablet shutting down when I am watching a HD video on Youtube or locally from the device. It does not always happen but what is consistent is it always happens when the video begins to drop pixels. For whatever reason If the video begins to degrade, the application locks up and the tablet shuts down. Anyone else experiencing this issue and have a fix?

Happens to me only when I'm watching videos on youtube, when I plug my tablet into the tv using the HDMI adaptor, and overnight when I wake up and its turned off. Other than that I don't get any shutdowns from general use at school, on pretty much all day taking notes browsing the web and movies/music.

It happens to my tablet every once and a while also. Sometimes the sound will hang for a few seconds too.

I too am growing more frustrated. Rather than shutting down, it would be better if the app just crashed. Maybe the problem will be addressed in the JB update.

True. That could be the case. Hope so. Also I have experienced the youtube app itself to be quite buggy on this device, at least until the latest update. Now it seems to be running ok..

I wonder when we'll see the JB update! No leaks or any news on that. So much for Sony claiming it will be out shortly after launch. Oh well.

Also waiting patiently on the JB update. Hopefully it ll clear up the worst bugs, and maybe even improve optimization. So far, I get 6 hours of normal web browsing on lowest brightness possible. Seems quite a bit far from what they promise, and also what many reviewers claim. Allthough very mixed opinions on the battery life. Also it takes more than 9 hours to recharge from zero. Sony says 5.. :/ anyone else experience these lack of power management? Think i might go to the shop for a new one, if they agree, that the battery is somehow faulty..
