1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hi all, I'm a new member here.

    I tried to search this topic and I found a lot of undesired reboot stuff but nothing like this one. I may have missed one, if I did I'm sorry.

    About 1 in 3 times when I try to power off my Droid (Moto A855), instead of shutting off, it re-starts after powering down. This usually happens after it has been heavily used.
    Any help or a pointer to an existing thread will help. Thanks.

    My phone used to do this on Froyo. I am nit sure of a fix, but it seems that only Motorola phones have this problem.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I'm worried that its ready to self destruct... I guess it'll live then. :)

    Plugged in

    I've noticed that if my droid is plugged into the wall, and I shut it down, it reboots (restarts). But if it is not plugged in, shutdown stays shut-down.

    It's always done that. Had mine for two years. It's a Motorola thing or just the a855.
