I posted a heavily WL'ed book and it is waiting on a person to respond, when I look at their info it says account on hold.  Does the WL book still wait for them to respond?

They probably scheduled the vacation hold ahead of time and you posted your book just prior to the start date. So yes, you have to wait out the 48 hours, though if you contact the PBS team, they might be willing to help.

I am just being impatient, I am on my way to the PO with a stack of books, and I know this one will roll over and go out as soon as I get back  angry

When I go on vacation, I put my account on vacation hold, but those  of my WL books where I'm close to the top I put on auto request  (normally they're not).  I'm presuming that if someone looked at my account they'd see it on hold.   Pat

Or they could have had their account on vac. hold with their wishlist autorequested but ran out of credits--and then it is handled just like a regular WL 48 hour timeframe...if they aren't around it will probably roll to the next person.
