Reasons to Reboot Screen? Also: Tune In Tip.

I saw a reference on here to someone who said they reboot their display while driving "all the time." I couldn't understand why you would need to, and I didn't remember learning how to do that.

Later, I was trying to listen to podcasts on TuneIn Radio (an app I use on my phone all the time). But it wasn't updating the podcasts... it kept displaying the May 24 PBS Newshour as the most recent episode. I tried all kinds of swipes, etc, and couldn't force a refresh.

Then I just guessed that holding down both scroll wheels for a few seconds might cause a reboot (makes sense based on how computers and phones reboot). Anyway, the system rebooted, and the updated podcasts were there.

So, I was wondering if anyone has found any other problems that are solved by a reboot. Now that I know how easy and safe it is to do it, I just wonder what this new knowledge will do for me.

Yep, I did it yesterday when the web browser was refusing to load. I was worried about doing it, thinking it would lose various settings or Bluetooth connections or something, but it did not appear to forget anything. And it fixed the problem.

So far it's fixed Slackers inability to go directly to the song requested. It's worked the 3 times i've done it in the last 2 days.

When my 3G connection was bad, it fixed that. When my bluetooth wouldn't connect, it fixed that. When my car was glitching and and coasted instead of regen during braking, it fixed that. When my Slacker radio wouldn't initiate, it fixed that. When my backup camera was glitching and became blank going in reverse, it fixed that too.
