So today I should probably really finally receive my GPD roulette, the suspense is killing me!
But I wonder about one thing: the XD was killed if you turned it on/off while charging.
just posted this:
"So here is something strange that happened to my Win. I want to preface this that I disabled hibernation, so the unit is only able to sleep or shut down. I had it running for about an hour, but plugged it in to charge and left it alone. I came back about 4 hours later, and the unit's light was rapidly flashing purple. I unplugged it, and the unit was dead. It wouldn't turn on, wake, etc. It was just dead. I plugged it back in. It's LED would just flash blue for 1 second, go out for 3 seconds, and repeat. I left it alone for 20 minutes, came back, and it finally turned on. I think there may be some issues with sleep, at least with my device. I am re-enabling hibernation."
We have also seen a few other people who say their win worked great shen first started up, but then they charged them and they were turned off and wouldn't go on anymore ie bricked.
we have also seen there are units in which the device turns itselff off from sleep mode.
so I wonder, does/can closing the lid of your win when you're done gaming and plugging it in the charger for a few hours somehow kill your unit? I am talking out-of-the-box configuration here, so closing the lid will put it into standby. If it does, then we have to remind people somewhere to disable sleep mode and make it so that the device will go into standy with just the screen turned off when you close the lid instead.
Does anyone know? If I receive a working win that can play intense 3d games for a few hours without crashing, I sure do not want to blow it up on the first day!
