    Default PlayBook closes down apps

    Been using my girlfriends PlayBook yesterday and today, but when I open some apps, they don't open. I was on the Internet, I can be using it and it closes down. Solutions please?

    Reboot. Hold power button and volume + until the screen goes blank(past the options for standby, restart or turn off). The PlayBook will restart automatically.

    Default Closing game

    My playbook with the latest update does not allow Modern Combat 2 to run, as soon as it starts it closes but MC3 works fine.

    A simple restart should suffice. I can count the number of reboots I've done in almost two years on three fingers and even that may be one too many. The OS is extremely durable.

    You're probably right. With the 3 minute reboot time I just skip the restart and go right for the reboot. I know that will fix it.

    Can you open your Contacts at all? If so, look to see if any of them contain ODD data or weird symbols.
