    I've also had this happen since the update. For me, sometimes the screen will freeze and become mostly unresponsive when I'm scrolling through the favorites shelf. However, the top buttons/selection spots for Newsstand, Music, Books, etc. still work. So if I select Apps at the top, I can pick an app from there & when I go back to my home screen, the frozen favorites shelf problem has corrected itself. It's still annoying, though & I hope it will be corrected.

    It's happening to me as well. Received it as a Xmas gift, downloaded the newest release (6.2.xx), freezes up often. Also seems to freeze up after entering "sleep" mode.. Requires hard reboot. I like the concept but with all of the screen freezes, it is frustrating me greatly..

    Could it be a resource intensive app that has been installed. I haven't had any freeze issues but I am suspicious that the Accuweather app was draining my battery.

    I would probably also disable the Accelerate page loading setting in the browser. Not sure if that does anything in the background that would lead to freezes but it sure improved the web browser.

    Just a guess, but I have noticed some really downgraded performance by my entire machine (laptop) when logged onto websites that make extensive use of ajax...some forums in particular. If you see the dreaded twirling circle of dots...that may be your problem.

    I have had no screen freezes on our kindle...but so far as I know I have avoided big ajax sites so far.

    Screen Freeze

    Wondering if anyone came up with a solution for the kindle freezing up. My wife sent hers back because it wouldn't charge, the replacement worked fine for the first week now it't constantly freezing.
