    back in OS 2 beta, when your PB is charging, and if you touch the screen, the PB wakes up. This did not happen in OS 1. Now we have OS 2 official release, and taping it still wakes it up, why is this? This is a total nusance. RIM is obviously putting no attention to details and spending minimal amount of effort on OS 2, after 10 month and this bug still here? WHY!!! I am so frustrated!

    me also direct from beta7111, no problem so far..

    battery life even better, free memory is about 550MB after booting, and about 200+ with browser, messages, pictures, and other app open.

    Why do you consider this a bug and not by design?
    Tapping only wakes the Playbook while it is connected. If it is running from battery you still have to swipe.

    Yup. Confirmed. My PB does this when charging but not when free of the power cable.
    Perhaps someone thought this would be a good feature when sitting on the dock, for faster access.

    I think it's a great feature! Did you open a support call at RIM or post to one of their support forums?

    If it is plugged in you obviously aren't carrying it around so why would you accidentally touch it unless you are using it while charging?

    Stop touching it. Didn't your Mother tell you that?

    Funny that what one might call a bug another would call a feature.
    I like it and in the absence of an always on mode would also like it to act the same off the charger.
    I might feel different it the PB was sleeping with me.
