I am very annoyed with Amazon and Waterstones, they have ruined my life.

I want a pvc cover that looks like a book with Waterstones printed all over it.

I want my screensaver to be an advert for Tena Lady. come on Amazon pull your finger out and make it happen.

This waterstones screensaver is it a big deal? I was all set to reserve one but then started reading these reviews about the screensaver,
I can't find any vids to show me what it looks like and whether it hinders the use of it.

If you get a case like the iPad one where it turns on upon opening do you even see it?

As I understand it the Waterstone's advert just replaces the Amazon screensaver. It doesn't affect the use of it. If you have a cover that puts it into sleep mode and wakes it up when you open it then you wouldn't notice it.

I eventually bought the case that puts it into sleep mode when you close it and wakes on opening. To answer your question,when opened you do still see the waterstones screensaver,then after about a minute or less it goes on to the homepage or book,whichever you closed it at.

" ... then after about a minute or less it goes on to the homepage or book,whichever you closed it at."

A lot less I would expect if your machine is working ok. Mine takes less than 2 seconds for the sleep screen image to disappear when I open the cover.

On a full battery it does take a bit less but when the battery get to half way down or below,then the screensaver does appear for a bit longer
