    Sorry. I find the long press to turn the thing on to be very non-intuitive. I can't think of any device other than android phone and tablets that work that way. I've seen devices that use a long press to reset, or enter setup mode, or go into some parameter setting menu, but a long press to turn on is kinda weird. Especially since a short press wakes it up in normal usage. When you said it shows a full charge but otherwise blank screen, that struck me as exactly what you'd see from a a short press on the ON button.

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heartís desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

    Sorry, you got the blast that should have been for the asshole at Comcast who was the third person to ask me if I had restarted the fucking modem.

    I'm one of those odd ducks who reads the directions, so I did know about the long press, but you had no way of knowing that.
