    Keeps shutting off, have to pull battery

    So after 1 week my bionic screen goes blank. Pushing the power button does nothing. I have to pull the battery to get it to restart. It does it randomly...after its been idle for a while. Any ideas?

    My 2 used to do something similar randomly as well until the recent firmware update. Sometimes it would do as yours did, and sometimes it would restart on its own. I think it has something to do with a power issue as it never happened when it was getting power through USB, only when the phone was operating on the battery. Unfortunately I never found a fix on my own.

    just something that is happening right now, happens when you are an early adopter of electronics.

    a trick to use instead of pulling the battery is to hold the power and both volume buttons for 10 secs will reboot to fast boot and the press vol up and your phone will reboot.

    After over a week with no issues, I started seeing this yesterday. Happened again today. Frustrated!

    This is due to the battery performance mode. This was a known bug in the atrix and setting the battery mode to performance will fix your issues. Even though the battery modes are limited to during the night it messes up during the day to.

    What is the point of "hold ... both volume bottons" as volume ROCKER can go EITHER go one direction or another BUT NOT BOTH?

    try it once i bet you will find that you can indeed hold down the vol up and down at the same time

    but in actuality it is holding the power and vol down and then sliding up to vol up to just go through ap fastboot to reboot the phone, but either way there is no battery pull.

    i havent had to pull the battery since the first day i got the phone and it has locked a few times since then

    He means...hold down power and Volume Down. It will bring up the menu for powering options. While still holding Power, tap Volume Up, and the phone will reboot.

    Holding the power button by itself will bring the power menu. Volume bottons do nothing. I think combination of power and volume buttons work during the boot but not while phone is on
