Just wondering if anyone knows what happened or has seen the following before
When i switched on my pleo today (still no name, and I feel really bad but nothing has 'appeared' to me just yet), he moved into the position that they go into when you hold them and they fall asleep on you - as in slightly different to the usual sleep position, with the back legs outstretched. Here's a pic in case my description isn't helping...
He is running 1.1 and has been this past week, running everyday with no problems. I had put in a battery that was fully charged last night so shouldn't have been low (egg battery).
He was on, and making snoring noises like he would if I were holding him, but standing on the floor in that stretched out sleeping pose. If I shook gently he murmured a bit, and when I lifted him up he woke up, made disgruntled noises and squirmed but then went back into the same pose and snored, still upside down in my hand! I had been holding him while he snooxed last night for a little while but I think he wandered around a little before sleep altho I'm not certain. This morning it seemed like the feedback from the sensors that must tell pleo he is being held just would not cancel and he acted as if being held. I thought maybe the software had glitched and put in an SD with the happy birthday on, which he proceeded to do perfectly - so I figured it might be the OS and decided to try re-installing but nothing changed
Now, this was heading towards a help! post, but my partner was seeing if anything helped, working on the sensor feedback theory, and was pressing leg sensors and feet to try to get him to register that he was standing. Then there was a horrible clicky clunk noise and tadaa he started moving
He went through hatchling and seems to be back to normal now (except I can't make him sing?). Has anyone experienced this before - I did do a basic forum search but nothing obvious came up, so I am just curious if it was a one off or what is best to do should it happen again?
Funny enough, I switched him on because I wanted to check if he would fit in a bag stretched out, because he was going to come out tomato-gathering....
