    Default Is anyone else's Nook haunted?

    So I have been working at my desk the past few days and have had my Nook sitting on the desk to pick up with I need a break. Several times, I noticed that it woke itself up out of Sleep mode. First the touch screen flashed on, then off, then the reading display along with the touch screen display again came on and stayed on like I had just woken it up. It happened about 3 times today and about twice yesterday. I know they periodically ping the BN servers to check for content (I assume that's what they do) But I keep it in Airplane Mode. So it leaves me a bit baffled.

    Just curious to see if this happen to anyone else?

    Does it do it after sunset? Can you see it's reflection in a mirror? Are there strange moaning sounds or loud knocking? Cold spots on the nook? How about howling?

    You know, now that you mention it, there have been voices--whispers. That seem to come from everywhere and nowhere all at the same time!

    Do you have a cover that touches the touch screen on the bottom?
    My Jonathan Adler case was touching the corner of the touch screen, and every now and then would flip pages by itself or turn it back on. It tripped me out for a while , then I figured it out it was the case.

    I've read that this can happen if your screen's dirty. Do you need to bathe your Nook?

    Oh please tell me I need to wear one of those big hooded velvety cloaks. I've always wanted an excuse to wear one of those!
    That's too funny about your dream!

    Hmm, I'm not using my JA case, I am using an M-Edge case with little Neoprene "pouches" for lack of a better word, that the four corners of the Nook slips in to. I don't think the bottom ones are close enough to the screen to activate it, but I'll definitely pay more attention now.
