    How is this possible?

    Ok, how about this: I've done a factory reset and frequent *228s, and here's what happens: On a plane trip, I do a full power down prior to takeoff, and put my X in my shirt pocket...nothing touches the power switch. Then, within thirty minutes, the device powers back on spontaneously! The first few times, I figured I'd inadvertently hit the power button, but now I see that's not the case. I know all about BB's and Androids power-cycling and/or shutting down spontaneously, but I've not seen anything like this. Have I got a collector's item or a lemon? Suggestions, please.

    No...no alarms set. And it's happened after doing a factory reset. Puzzling.

    That is odd. I have had my phone reboot itself but never turn itself on. I don't ever have my phone off though.

    My son's Droid X will sometimes reboot instead of powering off. I've always assumed it was something going awry in the shutdown process. I've never seen it power on by itself once (I believe) it's fully off though. I suppose it's possible that it's hanging during shutdown and eventually rebooting, but I have suggestions on how to determine if that's actually what's happening.

    @birdiebo is the phone stock? I know I had a bad install of a rom, where the phone worked fine but ever power down for me was a reboot.

    I've researched this with my DX, talked to many levels of tech support, found threads about it, and tried all suggested solutions except to brick the phone:
    SOME, not all, DX phones will re-start after a shut off. Sometimes minutes, sometimes hours later. There is no solution. This is a "known issue" "to be corrected in the next software patch"... but there is NOT going to be a patch or correction. Live with it. The semi-good news is that on the second shut-down it rarely re-starts.

    Why not just put it on airplane mode and call it good? The battery will nearly last forever on airplane mode if you aren't using it.

    Its a known issue with the last ota.... sometimes if u power it off again it will stay off. Sometimes not. New soak coming out, so hopefully that and the book of other issues will be taken care of.

    Incorrect. There is going to be an update to adress this as well as other issues. .621
