    How come when I power off my droid and plug it in for the night to charge, it turns back on automaticly after a few minutes.

    Droids are always on when charging. It's in the manual. ;) Which you can only get by going on the Motorola website and requesting it - they send it out immediately! Wonder why they just don't include it with the phone.. You can also download a pdf file of the manual - but it's nice to have the hard copy.

    And yes - the Droids do get very attached to their owners - a real love affair! :)

    That's probably the one thing I hate most re: Droid. I'd like to power it off and charge it for the nite w/o restarting (and lighting up my bedroom like a super-duper nite lite!). So, instead, i flip it over (room-darkening mode) and then, cuz of its touch-screen and being flipped over, it randomly calls contacts out of my phonebook (repeatedly, no less!) while i'm sleeping. pretty cool, huh?? this needs to be fixed, asap.

    Mine doesn't do that. You should look into that.

    Which is weird because if you connect it to a computer via usb and are charging it that way... you CAN turn it off and it will stay off, and still charge (well it at least appears to be)

    Hadn't thought of checking that. U r absolutely rite, it turns off/stays off while tethered to the laptop. Interesting...

    I believe it has something to do with the difference in power supplied to the unit.

    Maybe a built-in way to charge faster when hooked up to a computer, since it does charge slower.

    While I agree that it may have to do with the different power available, I still don't understand why the designers didn't decide to let users make the decision, instead of forcing them to leave the phone on when charging on 110v. I mean, if the user/owner wants it off, why not allow it? Doesn't make sense to me.

    I also was suprised that it turned back on when connected to the charger.

    I have found that you can press the power button to at least put it to sleep. This will turn off the display.

    Reason most people want to turn it completely off is so it won't wake them up if someone calls in the middle of the night.

    This is what I do as well since I don't like the "night light affect".

    Oh i completely agree, merely saying that might have something to do with it. If users want the phone completely off, they should be allowed to. It may just be an overlooked thing that allows you to turn it off while it's connected to a computer, or it's over looked it makes you turn it back on when plugged into 110v.

    There's an option to turn off the "always on" feature when the droid is charging

    I don't think that changes the ability to turn it off while charging, that allows the backlight to stay active and it not to go into sleep mode while your charging, so you don't have to always unlock it.

    You're right, New2U. My "super-duper nightlight" syndrome was because i had my screen set to "always on" (for one of my apps); i had forgotten about that setting. So, short of having an option to power down while plugged-in, i'll just set my screen to timeout quickly at bedtime and turn the sound off. this thread has been helpful; thx.
