    It appears that RIM may have fixed the physical buttons on newer models.

    My 32GB from SBB has a workable power button and volume buttons; no more pencil shutdowns!

    Thanks but this is old news. Newer PBs do have raised power buttons and clicking volume buttons.

    Meh. I've stayed off the PB forums for a while; I found it best to forget about it until OS2.0 dropped.

    Sorry for the old news, but it's nice .

    My power button and volume down buttons are fine... volume up does not have a 'click' when pressed though.

    Same here. Volume up button does not "click".

    Edit: S/N 1343-9. Wife's new PlayBook (bought 2 days ago) has S/N 1344-0 and both volume buttons "click".

    Same here. Let's create a "Playbook non-clicking volume up button" group on Facebook

    I've had my PB since April and have never had any problems with the power or volume buttons. Same goes for my wifes PB purchased last October. I think it would kind of suck to have a big a$$ power button that is easy to hit by accident at the worst possible moment. In fact that is why my first tablet (an android POS) was introduced to the wall at a very high velocity.

    ......I thought volume buttons were suppose to click

    But I liked the clicking of the volume buttons. It helped me know when I was successful pressing the particular button. My Volume - button clicks, but my Volume + doesnt.

    I actually prefer the more recessed nature of the power button

    1343-5 here, volume up certainly works fine though does not click like volume down does. Not all that concerned about it.
