Cool-ER reader device information - where is it?

I also find it a wee bit irritating that my cool-er no longer opens to the page I was last reading.

However, I did have a problem with a corrupt document - and the cooler repeatedly crashed and eventually just hung as a result. The cool-er was locked in a loop of startup / then gray lines screen / then back to startup. That was a pdf - I've never had a problem with an epub.

So maybe this is a response to this problem temporarily - and hopefully the feature will be back sometime!

I was thinking that upgrading the firmware on my Cool-er would be good. I like the idea of faster firmware, but I am not happy that I will lose go to the last page I was reading thing when I turn on the Cool-er.

I have had a corrupted file on my Cool-er before and when I turned it on and went to it, and then my Cool-er crashed I did not get stuck in a endless loop. When I rebooted the Cool-er it went right back to library screen and did not default to the last book. So I don't think it was necassary to remove the feature that caused it to default to the last book (if that was the thinking behind the change). I think a good solution would be to make it a setting where you could choose to turn it off or on.

Does the Cool-ER have a "susped" or "keylock" mode where you don't switch off but just stop the keypresses from having any effect (and maybe blanking the screen)? I really like that feature on the BeBook (Hanlin V3) and now that I'm used to it I find it disappointing more devices don't have it (so, short press on the On/Off locks the V3, long press (~3 sec) switches off and longer press (~10 sec) restarts the device if it crashes/locks up, etc.).

Unfortunately not - however the keys on the front of the Cool-ER are very flat and so accidental pressing to change page is fairly minimal.

That's one thing I like about the Sony PRS models, that little toggle-switch at the top that allows you to put it into standby without fully switching it off, for almost instant resurrection when you switch it again.
