    Default Biggest N10 pet peeve... sound off!

    Constant reloading of wallpaper! Sometimes I get a five second blackout when I return to the homescreen or simply rotate.

    (Still my favorite 10" tab)

    Random freezes, .Usually during app update downloads but not always. Still like the thing, too, but my wife's iPad never does this. Hoping for improvement with the next update or the next N11.

    For both of you- I have seen both behaviors before and a simple cache partition wipe fixed it for me.

    My biggest peeve is the way the battery acts after not even two years (the "poof" powerdown at 70% battery after a few hours of playing a game). Batteries wear, but I think it should have lasted longer and the indicator should be much more accurate.

    Second would be the last of an SD card or 64GB version. Otherwise, I really like the tablet and its design.

    I've had mine since the first week they came out. I can drain the battery within a few hours. It used to last about two to three days with usual off and on use. I guess I can get the battery replaced.

    Seems better after a cache partition wipe, but blackouts still happen all too regularly. Here's hoping whatever replaces the N10 has better/more video memory!

    What do you mean by blackouts?

    I think he means a momentary (in seconds or fractions of seconds) black screen where apparently nothing is happening. This sometimes occurs when the machine is either freeing up memory or if the CPU is overloaded (or both). The former being more likely.

    Most of the time clearing the cache partition will work to fix such an issue, and it might last for many months... sometimes less. Other times it is an indicator of the use of a really big application, or poorly design apps that are not releasing resources correctly.

    Specifically, when I rotate my N10 or when I press the home button, my wallpaper is gone (black screen) but the icons and widgets are in place. I've literally stared at a black screen for five seconds before the wallpaper was reloaded into memory. Sometimes changing wallpaper will alleviate the problem, but it always happens to some degree.

    You must not run very large programs or switch between large programs.
    I don't have it happen all the time, but it is certainly not rare (I alternate between two games a day, for about two 45 min sessions, and I see that behavior at least once a week, I never reboot unless necessary, and if such issues start to get excessive and are not cleared up with a reboot, I will wipe the cache partition).

    A black or dark wallpaper makes no change in energy consumption over a light or white wallpaper on an LCD screen (like the Nexus 10).

    Sorry Crxssi, I wasn't clear. At that time I was using one of the active or animated or whatever they are called desktops. I also find prefer the black to colors/pictures for various reasons. Less Eye strain [ I stare at a monitor and TV all day at work where I cant control the colors/images displayed], I don't like Icons disrupting pictures etc. SO while there are no power savings over a static image, it works for me.

    Well, an animated wallpaper will, indeed, use up power (while a non-animated one uses none). And I do use that neat fishtank one myself because it is just so incredibly neat. But my tablet spends very little time on the home screens/desktop anyway, so in my case I doubt it makes too much difference.
