Yes, the same thing happened to me just last week.  Unfortunately it happened the 2nd day of a 5 day trip away from home.  Left me with no e-mail or web access. 

It was working fine one day and the next day when I went to check e-mail it was just frozen.  I tried reset button, reset button + power button, and I even removed/re-installed the battery.  Eventually I got limited response.  When I power up I can get past the unlock screen to the "desktop" ---- about half the time.  Even after I get to the main screen, the only thing I can get any response from is the Aldiko e-book reading program, and even that is hit and miss. 

The response is very erratic.  I have to keep powering off/on to navigate thru a book.  Sometime I can get a page turn or even two or three before it freezes again and I have to go thru the power off/on process once more.

I am searching but haven't found any useful info about this problem yet.  I don't think I'll spend a bunch of time on it.  I think the touch screen just is toast and it's time for another tablet.  So far I'm leaning towards the LePan 1020 but I am still researching. 

Good luck.

I just thought about this.  My screen started acting wonky several weeks before the freeze.  Every time I would power off or just put it to sleep -- when I powered up again, the screen auto-rotate would be disabled.  I would have to go into settings and check the auto-rotate box again.  This happened no matter what position the screen rotation lock (on the side of the unit) was in.

Have any of you tried to do a backup then factory reset? It will fix many things I.e. autorotate will stay after you set it. Hope this helps.
