    Same trouble here on a Toshiba Thrive.
    When the nook app is on the screen stays on.

    Has anyone found a solution? TY

    Same here on Captivate OS 2.2 and Nook Color with CM7 running from the SD card. Neither one will sleep when the book is open.

    I just spent a total of 25 minutes on Barns & Noble live chat and they don't have a clue. Said they hadn't heard about it but did finally say,

    "What we are going to do is to take note of this issue and forward it to our Product Team. We will also look for other customers who are experiencing the same issue. Just so you know, we do not have exact time as to when this will be resolved."

    I told them there were a few forums with people asking this same question...we'll see.

    Yea, there currently isn't a fix for this. I was reading an emotobook on my fire while in the nook fan and realized I had stuff on the stove. Came back an hour+ later to find the fire was still on and not sleeping lol. After playing with it for damn near 6 hours and trying to figure out whats wrong, I gave up. Has to be a developer issue that they need to look into.

    I found out where the block is and it is in the permissions of the android app for nook and blocks sleep mode for ANY user on any device. This means B&N has to fix it, we can't. I'm contacting B&N as I want my sleep back or I won't be able to use their app. I have over 400 books but if they can't fix this I'll use aldiko or another ereader app instead.
