Help Hmmm, "white screen" on Fuze happening more regularly...

Recent posts on the Rockbox Clip thread reference this "white screen" issue with the Fuze - didn't want to post OT there so...

Have now started to see this happen a bit more often on my 3 week old Fuze8GB+16GB OF than I would like. Have seen this happen twice now in last few days - both times coming as a result of unplugging the Fuze from my PC after extended period [overnight].

Extended hold of the Power up button restores the Fuze perfectly [at least so far].

Have not fully searched ABi yet, but:
- is this a common Fuze thing?
- should I not leave my Fuze plugged into my PC for too long [as the screen does stay on]?
- I bought that clear case/wall charger/accessory pack someone kindly referenced here...Should I charge via the wall charger [or my Tekkeon MP1550] and only plug into PC when I am adding/deleting songs as Marvin and others suggest?

New Fuze 8GB+16GB Toshiba microSDHC, OF: v02.03.31A

Have just read up on some older threads - seems this can occur with some frequency but does not appear to be especially damaging...more annoying.

Wonder why this even occurs though? In my case, it seems to be a repeatable phenomenon - I almost always plug all my DAPs into my PC at night before sleep...none of my other players have ever had an issue with this.

Perhaps I should avoid doing this with the Fuze? Need to ping the Sandisk forums too I think...
