Dear Laura,
	I'm not sure whether it's battery related or not, but I have a few tips
that may help. Do you have virtual memory enabled? <control panel>
<memory> <virtual> The larger the memory card, the more virtual memory
you can have and the better programs run. I'm sure there's a limit to
the size of the virtual memory but I've not found it. Use the
application manager to check whether there are any updates to be had
<application manager> <check for updates>. Mine refeshes automatically,
you can also use the application manager menu to do that <tools>
<refresh application list>. To help some of the more knowledgeable
people on the list, post the firmware version you're using <control
panel> <about product>. Also the FBreader software version, from
FBreader menu <library> <about fbreader>. I assume you are not running
anything else at the same time; such as home screen applets or other
programs; but please clarify that point.
