    Hello eKoKnight,

    Just for the sake of argument, I have turned off my BlackBerry PlayBook.

    I observe while I turn it on (pressing the power button for a quick 1 sec), the red light comes on for 2-3 seconds, and it's fine.

    Sometimes you may press the power button, and nothing happens, I'm sure it has happened to me, but after the second try, no problems.

    Let me know if you need any further help.

    Thank you.
