    Default Types on its own.

    Earlier this week when starting my PB (running the latest OS) and the password screen came up, the PB entered random letters without me touching the screen. Before I knew it, the PB was on the 4th try of entering gibberish. I frantically held the power down while it was entering more letters for the 5th time. The PB finally shut down. I restarted it and all was normal. The password was then removed.

    As well, from time to time since updating to 2.1 the PB freezes for several seconds when launching an app, turning on WIFI or completing an action (opening a folder, switching a screen etc).

    Anyone else have this happen?

    Phantom typing and other random acts like that can be caused by plasma tv's, ungrounded charging sockets, and overloaded circuits (too many things plugged into that socket or other items on that same circuit breaker line). Other electronic devices can also cause such keystrokes or icons opening apps.

    I had it for the first time today using a badly grounded mains socket.

    I am pretty amazed that I don't run into it. The rapid charger (and formerly the pb included charger) are plugged into a power strip with phone charger (actually now the pb charger used for bb phone), and 3 other wall warts for charging headphones, earphones, my router and my dsl modem!!!!!
