I guess i need to record it.. lol, i promise it does it on mine.
[QUOTE=fwiw;58693]When I go to power off my Droid while its USB charger is plugged in, it shuts down and then immediately powers on again. If I power it off without the charger in, it shuts down fine. But then as soon as I plug in the charger the Droid powers on. Is this potentially some sort of hardware bug? Is there some sort of setting that might be causing this? Any other ideas?[QUOTE]
"Other ideas R'US" here.
Your characterization "while its USB charger is plugged in" is ambiguous. The device comes with a 110v charging "wall wart", into which a USB charging cord is attached. Is your question about charging from 110v, or disconnecting the USB cable from the wall wart and charging from a USB port?
If the former, my experience is that the phone can't be powered off. If it's off, it will come back on. If the latter, and the phone is on when connected to a USB port, I am able to power the phone off, and it will remain off during charging. YMMV.
Well i update to 2.0.1 and when the phone is in the wall charger, i turn it off and will turn back on after a couple of seconds. Same deal when i put it in my multimedia dock. However, when plugged into the PC the phone turns off and stays off. My phone is on 24/7, but for those who turn it off for whatever, this could be annoying.
Spoke to the folks over at Motorola today and this is one issue that the rep said they were wanting to take care of with the update here in a couple of days....SMS and MMS items were also discussed to be updated...Can't Wait!!! Some of you have been waiting a little while now....

Having the same problem described.
I dont think its normal. POWER OFF is POWER OFF. If you turned off your computer and it kept powering up all by itself you'd call a computer exorcist. Imaging having to unplug your computer to FORCE it to shut down.
I just got my Droid last week and it WASN'T doing it. It started doing it last night. Nothing like picking up a very warm phone that the screen has been on overnight. Its not bad in the winter time, but I hope they get it fixed by summer!
Also, my wife got one the same day as well. Hers shuts down/off just fine while plugged in.
Just my thoughts.
