    :welcome: to the Droid Forum. This is true, it will not turn off when plugged into a wall socket. The only way to charge it and leave it off is by using a USB from your computer.

    You can put it into Airplane Mode and make sure your wifi is turned off.

    Well, yes, if the computer isn't on, there won't be any power going to the phone. It's going to use less energy to keep the phone on silent while charging it with the power cord. The other option would be to get a charger cradle for just the battery, then you could pop it out of the phone to charge it overnight. The phone will certainly be off, then.
