    Hi all

    Increasingly, my Motorola Droid turns itself off and back on again. It generally happens when I'm NOT using the phone. It's just sitting there - on a table, in my bag, in my pocket - and I hear the "Droid turning itself on" sound out of nowhere.

    Sometimes it turns itself off and NOT back on, which I obviously don't realize until I try to use the phone again, which can be incredibly annoying if I'm expecting a call.

    I've searched around here and elsewhere and can't find a lot of information on this problem, other than that it might mean I need to replace the whole phone.

    My phone is kept pretty lean - I have about 60 apps installed (this number includes all the stock ones), all fairly rudimentary and popular ones. I haven't rooted the thing or really done ANYTHING else unusual to the phone. I'm kind of at a loss - anyone know what to do?


    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Do you have a task killer installed? If so, remove it and any apps that you may have recently installed. If this resolves the issue the begin re adding the apps one at a time. You really don't need a task killer the Android OS does a great job of managing applications.

    Hope this helps.

    hi there

    i did have advanced task killer free installed. i'd had it installed since the first week of owning the phone (in january), but hadn't used it in months. i uninstalled just now, thanks for the idea...
