Your Touchpad is a “dedicated device” and it’s a good idea every once in a while to check for system updates. When you power off your Touchpad while it’s plugged into power, it will shut down. However, you will notice that it automatically starts up again. At this point, the MyPlace Touchpad will not be operational but it will turn on to charge the battery.
To restart your Touchpad, unplug the device and hold the power button for a couple seconds. Click the power off option and wait 10 seconds. Again, hold down the power button for a couple of seconds. This will re-boot your MyPlace Touchpad to an operational state.
