    Is there anyway to turn off the droid's accelerometer? I am always lying on my bed doing stuff, and i get so annoyed when it switches to landscape... Is there anyway to easily turn it on and off like the Iphones?

    Go to 'Settings' > 'Sound & Display' > 'Orientation' > un-check

    I to find it annoying how it switches to landscape mode however, I love the larger virtual keyboard. Anyway to switch to the landscape mode manually if the orientation is unchecked?
