    I tested this and was amazed that my phone automatically restarted after a few minutes of being powered off. The only way to be sure your phone is turned off is to pull the battery.

    I notified the FAA about this issue. People with Droid X phones in their luggage or pocket and thought they turned it off may actually be unknowingly violating the law and possibly endangering the safety of others when their phone restarts on its own.

    A friend of mine works at a place that would fire her if she had her cell phone turned on while at work. Thankfully she doesn't have a Droid X. I doubt her boss would believe that the phone was off but turned itself back on.

    I agree this is an absolute joke. I can live with small bugs but this is major if you ask me. Either a battery pull or factory reset does not solve this issue. I am not a happy camper.

    I have just giving up as nothing solves this MAJOR issue.

    Battery pull does not solve
    Factory reset does not solve
    Clearing Cache does not solve

    The only thing that works is leaving the battery out of the phone. Gotta love this:mad:

    Glad I found this post. Thought I was going crazy. Updated with tbh 2 part. Damn phone has be restarting for about 4 days now. Actually saw the booger do it once. Battery pull and no issue for last 24. 2nd X still on froyo, still not a single issue.

    While there are many reporting this issue (see MOTO link above) not all have it and don't understand why. Wonder if anyone with a rooted phone or different launcher have this issue. I have a completely stock phone.

    Mine is rooted (tbh 2 part odexed). I realize Moto wouldn't worry about someone like me who takes leaks (p3 droid, not the toilet) and wants root, but for it to happen to people with the official ota is completely unacceptable imo.

    I thought I was the only one. The wife and I both have the X and we both got Gingerbread. Each night we turn them off as normal and after 1 to 2 minutes we'll see them kick back on. Both are completely stock.

    They also don't do this everyday. It's usually every other day or mine will do it for two days and hers will go a day without. Starting to think the updates brought ghosts to every ones phones.

    Regards,

    Someone on the Motorola forum called Verizon which in turn called Motorola and both said they have not heard of this issue. This is crazy. This is something we may have to live with until it's time to upgrade. What a complete joke.

    I did chat with Motorola and they said to send my phone in for repairs. They could not understand that this is a firmware issue and not a hardware issue.

    I can't beleive they have had no complaints. It's on this forum, Verizon forum and Motorola forum.
