    Anyone else having a problem with their Bionic turning itself on by itself? My wife and I bought the new Bionic about a month ago and have
    had this happen to us several times. We are certain we are selecting the "Power off" option and watch it shutdown. Then a few minutes
    later, we hear the phone coming back to life. We've both "factory defaulted" our phones with no change in the problem.


    I've read other forums where others are having this problem (with both the Bionic and the X). Any one heard of a fix for this (or an upcoming
    patch)?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Had the same issue with my X and now with my Bionic. My Samsung Charge never exhibited the issue and neither does the wife's Atrix (AT&T phone). Know of no fix -- I just mute it (Silent Toggle is a free widget that does that) and then select SLEEP or AIRPLANE mode after pressing the power button. :/
