Is there anyway to add a 'Reboot' option to your sleep/power button?

    Airplane mode...Power Off...Reboot?

    Any way to implement that?

    Not that I know of but...

    That option was one of the few things I liked about cyanogen's ROM, but I haven't seen it anywhere else. Backdroid includes a program called quick boot that lets you reboot or reboot into recovery or the bootloader. You might check that out.

    alt-shift-del will do a hard reboot, same as a battery pull. It's a handy trick.

    Will this work when the phone is frozen and requires a battery pull? I haven't had to do one in a month (knock on wood) but that would save me a lot of trouble.

    Once in awhile it will unlock and reboot, but usually for me if it is locked up a battery pull is the only thing that will work. I have only had to do a battery pull once or twice, usually if it seems locked up letting it sit for a couple of minutes will get it so you can at least reboot.

    If by win you mean buggy, slow and an all around PIA.

    At least in my experience, you do what you like.

    Lol ridiculous, just because you had bad experience doesn't mean everyone has.

    I absolutely agree, given the fervor over that ROM it must be doing right by most people. I'm one of the unlucky ones that can't seem to get it to work on my hardware. A bit of sour grapes, because it did have some nice features.
