    ICS causes daily crashes

    ICS was pushed out to my tablet in May. Since installing it I have had daily crashes. It has a tendency to turn itself off after going into sleep mode. Many times I have to use to power cord to reboot it, as the power switch has no effect. Has any one else seen this or did i miss setting some options with ICS?

    Welcome!

    Have you done a hard reset since the upgrade?

    "Cold Boot (aka Hard Reset)
    Unplug the power cord and shut the unit off. Press and hold the VOL DOWN and then POWER button at the same time for at least 10-12 seconds until after the start-up screen appears and is joined by some small print at the top of the screen then let them both go. If the TF booted the way it always does, you have not accomplished the task,try again until you have seen the 2 icons in the screen.

    After a few seconds you should see a couple of shapes in the middle of the screen called "Wipe Data" and "Android". The right "Android" will have a green highlight fading in and out. Wait a few more seconds until the term "Cold Booting Linux" appears in the list near the top of the screens and let it reboot. If you own a keyboard dock be sure you do this with the dock connected.

    This applies to all TF models, however, if your Prime is locked up, there is a reset available using the hole just below the SD Card slot, this is NOT the same as a hard reset."

    These are common isues :/ ASUS has yet to fix All of them but .24 seems to have helped abunch of people.
    HARD reset your tab, then when it updates COLD BOOT for the first time updating. This helps alot.

    Or you could Root and flash a custom ROM/Kernel.

    Welcome to the forum!

    This is a common issue with the .21 firmware, especially if you have not done a factory reset since updating to ICS.

    Check out this thread (for the TF101) but it is virtually identical to the SL101 that you have.

    Thanks for the info. From what I have read on the forum, the cold boot does not wipe out any data, correct? If so, then do I still want to back up my data before doing a cold boot? Just want to make sure before I proceed.

    It will not affect any apps or anything saved on your tablet.

    It just gets rid of fragmented apps and other unneeded data.
