Sure, I'll help as much as possible.

Internet Tablet OS 2006 edition
Version: 1.2006.26-8

(the official OS2006 firmware)

> - Have you installed any 3rd-party applications? (Application Manager ->
> Show installed applications)

Yes of course. Here it is the complete list as shown in the Application  

btaudit 0.1-1
btscanner 2.1-2.1
kismet 2006.04.R1-1.1.2006.08.30dev
leafpad 0.8.9-2indt1
libncurses5 5.4-4
midnightcommander 4.6.1
minimo 0.16.5-2
ncurses-base 0.16.5-2
oboe-home 1.0
osso-xterm 0.13
python2.4-runtime 0.2-1
sobexsrv 1.0.0pre4-1
themes-12pt 0.1-2
xournal 0.3.1-indt3

They all work fine.
Moreover, I installed dropbear, but I've removed it and installed OpenSSH  
(which can't be seen from the Application manager), working fine too. No  
other apps I've installed/uninstalled, as far as I can remember.

> - How do you switch OFF the device?

I push the on/off hardware button on the up side of the device, see the  
"Device mode" window asking what to do, select "Switch off!" and press the  
"OK" button.

> - Can you install xterminal and send us the output of /proc/bootreason?

I've tried to type "/proc/bootreason" in the terminal, both as "user" and  
as root, but it says:

/bin/sh: /proc/bootreason: Permission denied

Hope this is normal. By the way, I've read the content of the file  
/proc/bootreason through SCP, and it is just the line:


(a blank line following)
But, this time I had turned it on the "normal" way, i.e. it was off and  
I've manually turned it on. I'll let you know the content of the file when  
the problem occurs and I can use it without manually turning it on after  
having switched it off.
