Happens all the time: finger pointing. If the Nook is telling you 'user
not activated', it's not talking about whether you've been registered with
Adobe and obtained a valid user ID. My guess is that the Nook had a
headache that day and didn't want to function correctly. When this
happens, sometimes a hard reset gets things back to normal. Kinda like a
good swift kick in the pants.
Your ereader should have a small hole in the back somewhere that's labelled
'Reset'. All you need typically is a straightened paper clip to put
through the hole and press down on a small switch for a moment or more.
I'll bet there's a picture and maybe a description in the User Guide.
I did it and it worked. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Anything for a pretty lady....
I've had the same issue. I've tried restarting my computer, turning my Nook off then back on multiple times, (there is no hole in the back for a "restart" ) I've uninstalled ADE reinstalled, made sure my Nook was updated. My Nook still reads" User not authorized:" and when I tried (for the last day to authorize my ADE on my computer I still get the msg "activeration server error 'E_Auth_Not_Ready" AGGG! What else can I do???
I too have no hole for a restart. I finally went into settings, then Device
Information, and then erase and deregister Nook. I had only one book I was
reading, and it had not expired yet on ADE, so I figured I could re
download it. I got the message that any books purchased from B & N would
still be available in my account. To my surprise, when I re downloaded my
book, the other expired library books jumped from ADE onto my Nook also. I
really didn't want them, but everything is working good now, so I am not
complaining. Good luck.
It worked! I was leary of erasing and deregistering my Nook. but you're right, everything came back. i was able to redownload the library book I was reading so now I can finish the last two chapters, Thanks so much!!
I am so glad. I was just so frustrated, and was really afraid to
deregister, but hurray for both of us.
