    I love my Playbook so far, but had an unsettling event today. I installed the Pipeline app and "My File Manager" (which is pretty damn good). The Playbook is fantastic, this is far from a ******** thread, but I am wondering if anyone knows what happenned.

    About an hour or two after adding those 2 apps, my device semi-bricked, with the red light on the front flashing twice periodically, and it wouldn't turn on. I searched about it and went through the process of re-installing the OS, but lost all the files I had loaded. I have it all back up and running.

    I have no idea if the apps are related.....but am curious if anyone knows what causes this? I have a long trip in a few days, and would love to leave my laptop home, but am worried about not being able to reload the OS if this happens again.

    anyone else have this happen to them? Did you find out how to avoid it?

    Delete the new apps for now and do a normal restart. My limited understanding of the OS indicates that apps can get bogged but not the core of the unit.
