Default Accelerometer annoying anyone else?

Hi people. Does anyone else find that they are in bed and listening to their cowon j3, but they are tiliting it at about 20 degrees from the surface of the bed and the accelerometer annoyingly automatically makes it switch from portrait to landscape???? Is there any way to disable the accelerometer automatically doing this?

(I wouldn't mind so much if you could actually use the cowon when in landscape mode- but you cant access any of the main screens or even artists or anything >

I was just going to suggest this to you, as I can't stand when my devices shift orientation every time I move. Glad you figured it out.

Somehow I can't find the instruction in the manual. I really want to disable this feature.

Pages 18-19, item (3).

While in portrait mode, tap at the bottom of the title bar to get the dropdown menu, and then tap on the fourth button repeatedly until you get the "locked" icon. This will lock the player into portrait mode and prevent horizontal mode.
