The latest PlayBook OS update was released last week. Browsing and stability is much improved. Some new apps were also added.
But a nasty bug has crept in for a few users: The battery drains when the PlayBook goes to sleep.
Non-geeks had many theories including: This is the beginning of the end in 2012.
The fix is actually pretty simple: Open the new Video Chat application and accept the license agreement.
Odd, but this simple operation really does fix Build 126.96.36.1998 battery problems.
