I missed an important conference call at work today. I had set a reminder in Google Calendar on my work calendar to popup at 5 minutes and 15 minutes prior to the call.  The notifications never occurred.

Why? Well, it took me a while to figure it out, but eventually I realized that notifications do not appear for calendars that are not currently being shown! I have many calendars for my children's school, work, bills, appointments, etc. and I typically only show to my work calendar when I need it while at work.  I never imagined that I would need a reminder to turn on my work calendar so I could get reminders from it! Don't you think that kind of defeats the purpose?

I normally add important events to my main calendar which is edu version and I set it to show only busy no detail. Haven't missed any events so far.

So, I got a new beta yesterday, the one that lets you put apps in folders.  Sorry I don't know the version number.  Anyway, I have gmail and calendar icons on the shelf set to open in their own windows instead of in tabs, but ChromeOs keeps on forgetting this. It's driving me crazy!

I went back to the stable version and it's doing the same thing!

I am on an Acer C720-2802. I listen to SiriusXm connected to a Logitech UE boombox via bluetooth.  I listen a lot.  After a few hours, I the bluetooth connection fails and the streaming continues via the laptop speakers alone.  

When this happens, you cannot reconnect to the the UE.  Attempting to do so will result in "An unknown error occurred trying to connect to "UE Boombox"" Even turning off the UE and restarting it will not help.  

The only way to continue using the same device is to reboot the chromebook.  This happens daily after an indeterminate amount of time.  Anyone else notice this problem?

Thanks for trying, but it even happens when both devices are plugged in.  Also, I now realize it is happening at random intervals instead of just after a few hours of use.

Why do some "apps" like Gmail and Google Calendar let you switch to their windows by clicking on the icon in the shelf while others, ie, Stitcher, will just try to open another window?

Don't ya'll see? It IS mostly like a bookmark, but there is something special about some of these apps.  They behave differently in ChromeOS.  When I launch a Google app from the icon in the shelf a white line appears under the icon.  Now, if I leave the window and click on the same icon again it will return me to that window.  

Stitcher's icon acts like a dumb bookmark.  It simply launches another instance of Stitcher in a new window every time you click on it.  And there is no white line under the icon when it is running.

My biggest frustration with my Acer c720: I have to reboot a couple of times a day because bluetooth stops working, and every time I reboot I have to "remind" Gmail and calendar to open in windows instead of tabs.  Why can't this be remembered?  Why is bluetooth so flakey?

+Todd Waggoner I will give it a try, although the UE is at work right now...  I find it annoying that the volume goes down after a time to save battery i would guess.

I love the lunch buffet. They have a great variety and friendly service. I go there at least once a week.
