    every time I change the screen orientation all my widgets "re-" load. This wouldn't be a big deal- other than it is anoying, and some apps don't want to work until the widgets are finished loading- but some "word-a-day" type widgets go to a new word everytime they load so it is more like "30-words-a-day". Anyone know a fix for this? thank you.

    OK, so is it
    A-no one else has this problem?
    B-I wasn't clear in my question? to clarify- I turn the device from portrait to landscape and all the widgets on the home screen start to load again (like when they are first installed) and I have to wait for them to finish before I proceed)
    C-there is some other reason no one is answering.

    thanks

    I don't have your problem and I don't remember this being an issue with the stock launcher. I hate touch wiz though so I'm running the Go Launcher EX and it works well. Switching from poitrait only takes a second or two as the widgets just are redrawn.

    Maybe try a different launcher?
