Toshiba Thrive has a sleeping bug

The Toshiba Thrive
Toshiba’s new Thrive tablet has gotten high marks since it hit the market earlier this month, but some users have been reporting a strange bug in its system.

For some customers, the tablet has been refusing to come out of sleep mode, requiring a hard reboot. In a statement, Toshiba said that it’s aware of the problem and is “aggressively working to implement a fix that resolves this issue and will push an update as soon as possible.”

According to the company statement, Toshiba will also be pushing an update to make some changes to the multi-tasking capabilities within the next 48 hours.

The Android tablet hit the market July 10 and has a full-sized SD card slot, USB port and HDMI port, as well as a mini-USB port. It also has a removable (and customizable) backplate, allowing users the option to switch out their batteries.
