    Charging Droid while off.

    I was just wondering if it was at all possible to charge the motorola droid while it is off. I think i've exhausted all options. When I turn it off and plug it in, it turns right back on. When I plug it in while running and then turn it off, it just reboots right back on. I also searched through the setting and could not find anything. Is anyone else curious?

    Thanks

    The Droid automatically goes on by default when charging.

    Yep. I was reading the entire manual online the other day, and it specifically says "The device will be on when charging."

    Not entirely sure why you'd want to have it off in the first place.

    Short answer is yes.

    Long answer is that if you charge it via the wall wart, it will come back on. If you leave your PC on and use the USB cable to charge the phone, you can power it off once it's connected and it will stay off. You will see the LED charge light on, and that will go out when full charge is reached.

    Turn on airplane mode. No calls will come through.

    Didn't you answer someone else's question when it was to the OP?
