power-button and wake-up questions



  • Booxshop Service

    Dear customer, we apologize for the inconvenience.

    When holding the power button to boot the device, there is a light indicator on the power button and it will usually turn blue within 3 seconds. When the indicator turns blue, it means the device is starting and it is okay to release the power button. Due to the e-ink, it might take a bit longer than the other device to turn on. However, we will forward your suggestion to our tech team and will do our best to improve the software of our device. 

    We also informed our tech team about the feature of using gestures to wake up the device from sleep mode. However, this feature would consume a lot of battery, so we currently don't have a plan to implement this feature. 

    We appreciate your suggestions and understanding. If you have any further questions or suggestions, please feel free to let us know.

    Thank you so much for very detailed answer. Yes, I can confirm that blue-LED turns on after around 3 seconds and the button can be released while the device is booting up. I certainly missed that and was waiting until the display shows booting screen, which requires additional 1 - 2 seconds. That was the reason I thought of 5 the button must be pressed for 5 seconds. This is great and very helpful !

    I understand the concern with battery usage if display touch-gesture is used for wake up feature. I think this is a valid argument to keep things as they are.

    Thanks again and best greetings to entire Boox team.
