    yes when you momentarily press the power button it just puts it to sleep does not actually turn it off (just like the HTC windows mobile phones) if you want to turn it off press and hold power button for more than 2 seconds then a menu will pop up giving you options for silent, airplane, or power off. Select power off and confirm your selection.

    5) Go to the settings screen, Then select applications, Next select Development, Then ensure the STAY AWAKE check mark is not highlighted.
    If that don't fix it its defective my wifes was doing the same thing and I took it back today!!!

    6) To clear the search screens just press the BACK soft touch key at the bottom of the phone.

    Hope this helps, it is important that you spend lots of time with your phone to learn the menus like the back of your hand.

    that is just for getting rid of the screen icon will not uninstall app

    (side note) I have had many wm phones and BB storm as well and I must say every phone has its small faults and some are better at some things than others so not one is the perfect device, but in my opinion this Droid is one kick ass piece of machinery that is fast and sharp, I am loving it!!!
    big thing is get used to it like any other and lots dont need to complain when they dont even know......

    Couldn't agree more. Best thing to do is push and hold on different things and select the menu button when in different areas. This phone is amazing once people take the time to learn it. Love having so many apps in market as well.

    I'm having the same car cradle issue. It's driving me nuts. If I have it in just the cradle (without attaching it to the suction cup arm, it works fine. But once I put it on the arm, the buttons stop working!

    W.T.F.

    Removing an app from the home page.

    As I'm sure you all know by now just press and hold the icon, it turns red and the bottom center tab turns into a trash can. Drag the icon and drop it in. Gone
