Come on people! I know you all waited weeks to get your Gateway, but you can't possibly expect this issue to fix itself, or die away. Call Gateway, send an SOS, raise hell and let them now that you want this fixed and you want it now! Even, if it means sending it back. This isn't an annoyance, it is a design fault that shortens the life of your tablet and poses a safety hazard. Imagine what could happen in case it fails to shut down... catch on fire maybe?
