    My wife and I both have droids. We both have all the same apps installed. We both dock our phones in cradles at night and turn the screen off.
    For quite some time now her's will spontaneously turn on during the night and give us an unwelcome spotlight in our room.
    It happened twice last night. I haven't had this problem with mine.
    Anybody seen this issue, or have any suggestions???

    Might not be the issue, but on her phone, from the homescreen...
    Press menu
    Press settings
    Press applications
    Press development
    Make sure "stay awake" is NOT checked.

    I was afraid of that...haha!

    What cradles are you docking them in at night? Has her phone been doing this the while time you've had these cradles?

    Do you have any auto-task killers or anything set to automatically...notify you of something? I had Advanced Task Manager and it would notify you when it killed something automatically if you didn't turn the auto-kill notification off.

    We are using the Seidio cradles, but it happened with the stock cradle as well.

    Yes, advanced task manager is installed. But I don't see the auto-kill notification option you mentioned.

    Other than that the only things that pop up in the notification bar is standard stuff like emails, text messages, gtalk, facebook, calendar notifications, etc.

    If you're using something like Handcent or SMSPopup, it'll disrupt the sleep functionality on the cradles.

    Hmm...I'm stumped if only one is doing it and you're sure they're setup the same...

    This just started happening to me too but I don't use a cradle but I leave it charging overnite and I think this started when I got the autokiller but I might be wrong I can't think of anything else I downloaded.

    No i noticed the same thing a few nights ago... left it in the cradle and turned the screen off and i would wake up to it being on a few times at night. But its not every night. Last night i turned it off and woke up to it off..... very strange...

    Is it possible your Wifi or 3g signal is dropping and and reestablishing itself before you wake up? Are any Bluetooth devices trying to connect? Any of these *could* cause the phone to drop out of sleep.

    I think I'm thinking of a different task manager. Advanced Task Killer doesn't have an auto-kill feature.

    I have a temporary fix, until you find the problem, leave the phone face down on a counter, that way it won't be a spotlight at least =).

    I think my Droid does this and after reading the post here I think I know why. I'm rooted and have auto memory, which isn't really a task killer it's suppose to help Droid manage it's memory better. I wonder if in this process of helping Droid it isn't causing my phone to wake up.

    I saw it this way this morning when I got up and was a bit puzzled about it. Didn't think about it again until I read this thread.

    I think I'm going to dump Auto Memory. I don't see it as being helpful anyway.
