    I don't use one but I do know not all are made equal. What brand did you buy?

    I have one and it doesn't seem any different. I do have to hit it just right, however. I think there is some level of intelligence programmed in to reduce the number of accidental activations.

    I concur. I don't think the screen protector had anything to do with it. If it did, you'd have problems all over the screen.
    I do think there is something to what GizmoEV said. I've noticed after holding the tablet for awhile playing a game, that my thumb has slipped over the start button while playing...and it has some sort of intelligence to know if it was an accidental touch or not. But I agree that it would be nice to tweak the calibration a little. It isn't perfect by any means.

    I realized it isn't the screen cover. Sometimes it registers easily and other times seems almost impossible to press..

    I have the IllumiShield screen protector from Amazon. It has not affected the way the start button works, however I have noticed that the start button has a small contact area and you really have to touch the center of it in order for it to register. Any farther away from the center and it does not register.
