    Droid turns back on by itself after I turn it off

    Not all the time but most of the time after I turn my phone off it will shut down and then a minute later it will turn back on by itself. I know im not accidently pressing the power button and turning it on so why is it turning on right after I turn it off? I also know that im pressing the power off button and not the sleep button so this doesn't make sense to me. Can you tell me how to fix this problem?

    Please provide more information:

    Stock or rooted?

    If stock what software version? kernel version?

    What 3rd party apps are you running?

    If rooted what ROM/theme/"root only" apps are you running?

    Does this happen when the phone is plugged into a charger or does it happen regardless?
    Make sure the "stay awake" box is unchecked in Settings/Applications/Development if it only happens when phone is plugged in.

    It could be an issue with a services permissions preventing your phone from shutting off. What apps are you running that require frequent sync? weather bug for example.

    Also, try unchecking the "use wireless networks" and "use gps satellites" in your location and security settings and see if it's still doing it. It could be that those services are sending a signal preventing your phone from fully shutting down.

    That last one is just a thought. I've never had this issue with any device and I know for a fact that the problem you're having is a reported and documented issue with your particular device as well as with other devices after the Gingerbread update.

    I have a contact at Verizon and I'll see what I can find out about this issue.
    Unlocked and ready to ROCK! GNex: ICS 4.0.4. SU-SU-Suggestions anyone?

    You guys are not alone

    My wife and I have Droid 3s and BOTH of us are having this problem. Today, I'm sitting in a quiet church with my phone OFF and my phone shouts "DROID" from my shirt pocket! How embarrassing!

    Since the phone has poor battery life, I turn it off beside the bed... No magnets nearby, no chargers plugged in, no docking station, and yes, I turn it OFF. It turns itself on in about 5 minutes... but remains off when I turn it off for a second time... weird.

    From reading on other forums, this isn't just happening on the Droid 3. I am running Android 2.3.4, Build number 5.5.1_84_D3G-20_TA-9.

    'fess up Motorola/Google. You have a problem. How about fixing it!

    That, my friend, is a sign that the World is being taken over by technology. Our droids turn themselves on now, and next they'll be holding us hostage. LMAO but no seriously, probably a malfuntion or something.

    We both got our phones about a month ago. I expect it to work correctly, right out of the box... or Motorola/Google/Verizon should send out a patch. I don't screw with my phone (like rooting, or installing lots of apps) and my wife doesn't either.

    Dimmer_is_a_DJ: no my phone is not rooted, its a stock phone- kernel version

    I've finally fixed the problem though. All I did was take the battery out with the phone still on, let it set for a minute, and then put the battery back in and it hasn't acted up since!

    Same problem here: Stock Droid 3 just received from Verizon; turns itself back on within a minute of power off. Tried taking out and reseating battery and it's still doing it!
