I have just purchased a Pre2, and it shuts down randomly from time to time.
It goes like this: If I leave it on for 24 hours, asleep except for when I use it, then early in the morning it will start shutting off every few minutes or so, requiring a full boot to get it running again. If I remove the battery, wait 5 seconds and replace it, it will work again until the next morning.
I figured that it might have been the standard Pre battery issue, so I've shimmed the battery with a little paper, but this doesn't seem to have fixed the issue.
Has anyone experienced this and if so, are there any remedies short of returning it? (I bought this from a eBay seller in the UK, so returning it may be painful)
