    Unable to turn ON... please help

    Took this with me to Europe..not really a fan of this thing yet but okay...it makes it easy to do a few things. I have it charged, or so I think because I can't tell.... it wont turn on in any way, shape or form. Hooked it up to laptop computer for a charge and a go... left it all night. Left it plugged in...NOTHING

    WTF....why can't I get this stupid thing to turn on??? It worked a few days ago. Please email my phone charlenemanley@hotmail.com. It goes to my blackberry. Anyone? Help? Thanks in advance...

    Your pc will only trickle charge the TF. I suggest you use the wall charger provided and give it a good charge.

    You seem to have two problems:

    1. If you connect the TF to any Desktop PC or Laptop, your TF would only get a trikle charge - as the computer USB port is designed to provide only 5V and low current - whereas the Asus charger that came with the TF actually supplies 11V when it detects the Asus Charger cable being attached to it.

    2. Many Laptops are by default configured to switch off their USB ports when the laptop itself ha gone into sleep mode - in some Laptops there may be a BIOS option to overrie this option - but this usually works only if the laptop is actually getting charged through Mains. In any case however because of reason (1) above the charging will be very very slow.

    You can actually change your forum preferences and set it up so that you can make the forum send you an email notification whenever someone responds to your message - but you also need to subscribe to the thread to receive either instant notification.

    The effort involved in trying to send email to some other external email address makes it almost impossible for volunteers on this forum to send you separate emails to your specific email address. It is better and emails would be sent to you automatically if you subscribe to a thread and set change notification to reach you by email etc.

    Just throwing this in, in case it is the issue:

    If it is powered off (instead of sleep mode), you need to hold the power button for about 3 seconds and let go, for it to power up. If 3 seconds doesn't work, try a longer interval.

    I had to do that once, when it strangely wouldn't wake up after being in sleep mode on the plane. The being on a plane part is probably coincidence.
