    Anyone else's prime overheating while idle?

    I haven't really used my transformer prime over the past 3 days. The last thing I did was do the update that came up. I always keep the prime docked and in my bag when not in use. I noticed the other day when I tried to use it that the tablet was very hot on the backside and would not turn on. I had to hold down the power button to get it to restart. I charged it because the battery on both the dock and the tablet was dead. I had the tablet on the charger last night and I packed it for possible use today. Tonight I took it out to use and both the tablet and the dock was BURNING hot and would not turn on. I reset it with the power button and it is now on....the battery use shows that the only thing that was in use was the wifi. Anyone else's transformer prime exhibiting the same behavior? Should I call asus?

    I had this happen to me yesterday for the first time. Prime was on the keyboard dock. I had it in the travel sleeve all day while at work. When I got home the back of the Prime was very warm and it was dead. The dock battery was completely drained. I had to restart unit.
    I've had the Prime for a month and have never had this happen before. But I also just received the dock last week and don't have much history with it.

    I thought it was a fluke, but this happened to me yesterday also. It was on it's dock, in it's travel case. I took it out last night to use it and it was hot. The keyboard dock's battery was at critical and the tablet had about a 45% charge left. They were both fully charged when I put it in it's case that morning.

    This last firmware update has really messed with the battery.

    I have a temporary fix. Disable wifi while sleeping in the wifi settings. I no longer have the heat issue and my battery is fine and it wakes up instead of getting stuck in sleep. Hopefully the next firmware update fixes that so that I can get updates while my tablet is asleep.

    No problems here when I do charge it overnight with it sleeping. I also keep the Wifi off unless Im using it to conserve battery power and most of the time when charging overnight I turn it off completely.

    What sort of temps are you guys getting? I haven't had the idle/hot problem as I usually shut it down when I go to bed. The temp usually goes up 10 to 15 degrees F when in use. Ambient temp is about 70F and when in use the back gets up to about 85F. Not really anything I'm concerned about but, just wondering what others are experiencing.
    It seems like a good idea to have wifi off when sleeping but, I never looked in to it. Where is the setting for that?
