To turn off the Kindle Fire HD completely, hold the power button down for 2-3 seconds and release. A "Shut Down" button will appear (opposite "Cancel"). Touch that button. Allow the unit to cycle off completely. Wait one minute, then power up again. Your functionality should be restored.

Testimonial: "Contacted Amazon tech support and found out the problem was after using the Kindle for 4 days using a 1 finger swipe, I'm now required to use 2 fingers to swipe which isn't a problem for most of my apps but makes playing many of my game apps impossible as my F*CKING fingers aren't the size of a 5 YO. Thanks for the suggestion"
