I bought the standard dock from VZW the same day I bought my Bionic. At first, everything was gravy; I set my phone on the dock, and the docking options came up. Easy enough, right?? I bought it to use mostly as an alarm clock, which it was doing perfectly----at first. I started to notice when I'd wake up in the middle of the night because of some bright light that that light was coming from my docked phone which all of a sudden wasn't in docking mode, but in some other screen, like the music player or options or some other random screen. So I'd switch it back and go to sleep. I'm noticing that this is happening every night now. Even now, this morning, when I took it off the dock and put it back on, within an hour or so, the music player screen was up instead of the clock again. Does anyone know why it's doing this?? I'm not sure if this is impeding the actual alarm clock function because so far, I've been able to wake up and either set it back to the clock mode or just take it completely off the dock before the alarm goes off. I'd hate to sleep through it one night and find out it messes with my alarm and I miss work.
I've tried rebooting, removing the battery, changing the desktop options.... Everything short of rooting. The dock is the Moto brand from VZW and I'm using the adapter it came with, so it's not any of the components (I think). Is anyone else having these problems? Would it be some kind of software glitch or something? I don't understand how it could work swimmingly the first few weeks then all of a sudden crap out on me and fail to do the one function it's supposed to do.
