    It seems that the In-Pocket Detection function of the D3 doesn't work. Sometime when I lock the screen and put it in my pocket the screen turns on by itself. I think that it is the culprit behind the D3 powering itself on after shutting it down because every time I turn it on and shut the phone off, sooner or later it powers itself on. Now that I've turn it off I'm not having the phone turn itself on.

    FWIW, I've installed the leaked update but I've had the same problem before I installed the update.

    The bionic owners reported that when using the in Pocket, you should let the screen shut itself off without using your power button. If you do use your power button after enabling in Pocket, it disables it. Could be an overlooked bug.

    This comes from the droid bionic tech support section:

    Did you read the quote? It works as long as you let it do its thing... don't manually turn off your screen.

    It doesn't work for me on the D3 regardless hence the issues I spoke about in the OP.

    I was under the impression that with the in pocket detection on it's just supposed to keep the phone locked and from turning on while in your pocket. I ALWAYS use the power button to turn the screen off when I'm done using the phone like after I send a text or am done with a call or am just done using the phone and set it down. Should I turn the in pocket off or when I put it in my pocket just not turn the screen off manually? Maybe I'll do some experimenting with it and see how it works...

    Ok I just left the screen on and put the phone in my pocket and pulled it out a few seconds later and the screen was still on and I also manually turned the screen off and put it in my pocket and while in my pocket I hit the power button then pulled it out a second or two later and the screen was on, yet it's supposed to stop it from turning on while in your pocket correct? If so then it's obviously not working right. Maybe I should just turn the in pocket off then...
