Toshiba’s first Android tablet has generally received positive reviews so far, and even includes an unlocked bootloader to go along with its multitude of ports. Unfortunately, it looks like the Thrive may have hit a slight bump in the road, with users now reporting certain on/off issues with the tablet.
According to posters on both the Toshiba and XDA Developers forums, some tablets are having trouble waking up after entering sleep mode, while others seem to be powering themselves on automatically. Futhermore, the issue doesn’t appear to be isolated to any specific version of the tablet and can only be remedied temporarily via a hard reset.
Sadly, it doesn’t look as if the culprit behind the problems nor a fix has been found yet, with proposed solutions ranging from disabling Wi-Fi, to performing a factory reset and even removing task killer applications. On the plus side, Toshiba seems to be aware of the troubles and is currently taking plagued customer info via the aforementioned Toshiba forums.
While this isn't the first time we’ve seen a major tablet run into hiccups shortly after launch, as was the case with the iPad 2, it’s definitely not something Toshiba was counting on. It is yet to be seen whether the problem can be remedied through a software update or requires more stringent measures, but hopefully something official will come from Toshiba's end soon enough.
