This reminds me of some gadget I once had where you had to try and press
the power button to turn it "off" when charging so that it would not try
and boot up. Maybe I'm thinking of one of the early iPods. Having said
that, the Acer tablet I use to test Android things is also a bit flaky
when it comes to charging.

I keep meaning to take a look at QtMoko2. Maybe I'll get some time in the
new year, but my first priority is to find a decent job - ideally one where
the employer doesn't think they own the contents of their employees' brains.
