    My KindleFire went sleep when left unattended for 5 minutes or so
    I pushed the start button to wake it and nothing happens. How do I wake it up?

    Welcome to the site. Have you tried holding down the start button for a long time?

    Hard reset hold maybe hold power/sleep button for 20sec then release.

    this now happens to me several times daily. The Fire needs a hard start every time I leave for a few minutes unplugged. There is over 90% charge left but it still shuts down completely. This is a huge inconvenience.

    Today I bumped the start button and the Fire screen went black. I thought maybe it was asleep but it would not wake up by pushing the button quickly, three times, held in for at least the equivalent of shutting down. It woke up when I plugged it in even though it had nearly a full charge.

    bug?

    btw-it is a bit annoying that plugging in the Fire to recharge, or unplugging for that matter, automatically turns it on. So far almost everytime I plug it in to recharge I am not actually using it so I have to wait for the start up to finish and then push the button to shut it down. Maybe this is a user preference somewhere that I haven't found?

    Thanks for the tip! I was worried my Kindle Fire HD was a brick after failing to wake up from sleep. But I held down the power for 20 seconds, waited ten more, then pushed the power button and it booted up again.
