    I was in the middle of checking app info to delete cache when it suddenly froze. I put it to sleep, and now it won't wake back up. It's only been a few minutes so I'm positive it'll be up and running eventually, but has this happened to anyone? Should I be worried, or is occasional crashing/freezing normal? Usually my apps don't crash, but system stuff like 'settings' crashes occasionally on me.

    Plug it in too. If the battery is low sometimes it may not start.

    Hold the power button for a good 20 or 30 seconds, it will come back on.

    turned back on after holding down on the power button for a while, thanks . I knew it wouldn't completely die on me, but I'm wondering if having crashes from system apps is indicative of anything more worrisome?

    It could be. What kind of tablet is it?

    N7; "settings" and other system controls have always been a little sluggish and glitchy. Like, I don't know if this is normal, but I can never force apps to close to save battery.

    It JUST happened again! Up until yesterday, it never froze to the point where it was unresponsive for minutes on end. When I turned the screen off, for all intents and purposes it was dead for a good 5 minutes.

    When it finally responded to being woken up, it said that "settings" had crashed (pic attached).

    If you just got it I would consider returning it. You should never get this type of issue unless it can be traced back to the same buggy app. If it's random it could be hardware.

    mine has only done that once in all the time I've had it (a day after launch day), so I would worry much unless it's a frequent thing.

    AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH this is driving me crazy. it's happening at least 1-2 times per DAY now. I'm really reluctant to reset everything, but I might just have to. Earlier today I was watching netflix when it randomly closed. Then, it wouldn't open (it would open a black screen, which would instantly disappear), so I had to delete all the data and restart the app. Then, a few hours later, Nova Launcher crashed (never, ever happened before).

    I'm guessing it's pretty bad when the system UI crashes.. first time that's ever happened, and when it did I couldn't even turn the device off--I had to give it a few minutes before it would sleep. I've downloaded a lot of apps recently, but they were all part of that $.25 sale. I've had things like "settings" crash before, but now it's getting out of hand. Attached are a couple pics from today alone.

    Do a reset. I just did it on my tablet and was so happy I did it on my phone too. No problems at all now.

    One cautionary point. If your volume and power buttons are a bit stiff and noisy you may want to search screen lift as this problem can be an early sign of a series of worse problems you will have. Mine started with this and a bit of colour bleeding. A few days after I had trouble powering it on the touch screen was unresponsive. Then two days after that while I was trying to contact ASUS a crack appeared along the expected diaganol. Despite having had to replace countless products in the early days of the roll out ASUS was adamant that with the sign of physical damage it was not their problem. Thankfully my new heroes (Chapters Indigo) stepped in and when I can get to their store have a replacement waiting. If you have the power problem check for the other signs please and get a repleacement before the dreaded crack appears that can be used to turn you down. (You clearly don't have to take no as a permanent answer but still)

    Are you sure the battery is charged up? Leave it plugged into a wall socket overnight, then try again.

    Also, is it in a case? Some cases have a smartcover that turns the screen off when you close the cover (by using the special magnet sensor in the left border of the Nexus 7 when you look at it in portrait orientation). If you have a case like this, sometimes the magnet is too strong and will actually turn off the screen when you fold the cover in back of the tablet.

    My tablet is frozen on the android screen
    Welcome to Android Central! Can you give us a few more specifics? Can you confirm that you have a 2012 Nexus 7? Is it brand new, or have you used it for a while? Any new apps installed recently?

    When the tablet is frozen, you can always power it off by pressing and holding the Power button until the screen turns off. Then you can try powering up again by pressing the Power button until it starts up. If it still freezes, then try booting into the Recovery Menu as described below, and wipe the system cache partition (you won't lose any personal data or settings):
