    Left my "problem child" at the house Sat. around 10 am. Came back Sunday around 5 and it was on, with 20% remaining on battery. Recharged. Pulled battery (again) and left on table. It's now 7:51 EST Monday and it's still off. I wonder how many non-forum members with an X are having the same problem. They must feel worse that we do. Although sometimes ignorance is bliss, or so they say.

    Or the ones that never shut their phone off and are unaware of this issue.There are alot of people with this issue that have posted on several forums. Imagine the ones that don't post but have this issue.

    My first DROIDX did this a couple times while on Froyo. I would shut it off, then it would reboot. My current one has never had this issue.

    This issue cannot be overlooked. It keeps happening. Last night 45 minutes after I shut the phone off it fired back up again.

    Did 6 battery pulls altogether, both with phone on and off. I've had no restarts in 48 hours. I'm keeping an eye on this sucker for a week, but so far so good.

    This is happening with my Droid 2 also, running Liberty v.08. Glad to find info here (even if no solution).

    This is a nightmare; the damn thing turned itself on in my pocket at the opera the other night during a very quiet passage. It was on vibrate thank god, but just the buzzing made the elderly person beside me um, highly agitated.

    On a whim I googled the problem and found this site. Glad to see I'm not the only one with this issue. Highly annoying!!!
