Just got mine today and loving it so far, but my topic says it all.....do you have to turn it off, or can you just leave it on constantly so it's ready to go?

had mine on constantly for 5 days then discovered it had frozen.
On trying to restart, blue LED comes on for 2 dseconds, then goes out and doesnt output avideo signal.

Thought I'd burned it out when by chance discovered that if you plug your mini USB power into the USB- OTG connection instead, it still powers up and works OK!

Dont know why it now wont work plugging the power cable (got 2amp and 1 amp 5v usb supplies) into the power mini-usb connection, but there you go.

P.S. My wifi poor signal problem was immediately solved by opening the box and placing the 2 halves of the case (which have the 2 aerial wires connected) side by side, either side of the electronics. Since then have put the whole lot into a bigger plastic box. Never had a wifi issue since and get 20M download speed from 6m away from router.
Gonna get those mini- heatsinks to go on all the chips next- mine does not have any heat sinks at all (unlike some pics i have seen with a large heatsink across the electronics).
Hope this waffle helps someone else with one!
