    This is how the OS is designed to function. To get the home screen to rotate to landscape you need to install a 'home replacement' app such as Home++, GDE, PandaHome, OpenHome, dxTop.

    edit: it should rotate to landscape without the keyboard open when you have apps open however.

    But it would auto rotate before and I have it set to auto rotate under the setting/sound & Display/display settings/orientation - I think - but I am a newbie - you are my master

    are you saying that during a text message with the keyboard closed that it isn't rotating like before when holding the phone in landscape mode?

    you're settings are right.

    regardless of what it did/didn't do... the Home Screen is not supposed to rotate to landscape without the keyboard open using the stock set up. It will auto rotate to landscape when you are, let's say, browsing the web, using an app, scrolling thru menus, etc.

    I can't find the article right now but Google/Motorola has stated this.

    You can resolve this as I said with a home replacement app. There are a couple to choose from and they all add functionality and options to your Droid. Give em a look. I listed them a few posts up :)

    mine has been that way, at least intermittently since the update, seems to be straightening out...

    However, some of my widgets are out of whack and my power button isn't working.

    any of the widgets not functioning properly..... remove them from the home screen (trash) and re-add the widget. some of them required this after the update to function properly. Just like the 'gallery' widget/icon on the home screen was updated so if you had it there prior to the update it wouldn't work after... you had to delete it and replace it.

    also you might wanna try powering down and pulling the battery... a lot of the issues people have after the update can be solved by this. give it a shot, let us know how you fair.

    I've repeatedly pulled the battery and restarted the phone as well as started up in safe mode, no difference when it came to the widgets, the power button is the one thing that has been consistently screwy since the update.
