Toshiba pledges fix for sleepy tablets

Dozy Thrives to be revived

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Toshiba has confirmed the 'Sleep of Death' bug affecting some of its Thrive Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablets.

Thrive went live in the US earlier this month. It has yet to be released over here. A number of buyers in the States have complained that, after they press the power key to turn off the tablet's screen, the display never wakes up again.

The only way to recover the machine: power it off and restart.

After a long silence on the matter, Toshiba last night issued a statement. "We're aware of the issue and are working on a fix," it said, PCWorld reports.

However, there's no word on when the fix, which will be delivered over the air straight to the tablet, will be posted. ®
