Default 8130 Unusual Power Off Behavior

Please Login to Remove!

My Pearl is having a wierd problem. Every time I power it off, as long as I leave it out of the case, it will stay off. As soon as I slide it back into the case past the magnet it somehow turns itself back on. I take it back out of the case, power it off again, put it back in the case and it turns back on again. Out of the case it comes again, again gets powered off, put back in case and this (3rd) time it stays off.

Has anyone else experienced this? How do I fix it?

Thanks for your help.

Default Help, Please?

Can anyone please tell me if this is typical behavior for the 8130 or not? Is the magnet supposed to turn the phone back on once it's been powered off and put in the case/holster?

If you're putting it back in the case soon after powering it off, like 10 seconds, it's possible an inadvertent button push is aborting the power off.

I thought about that, so the next time I shut it down I made sure I waited. I timed 3.5 minutes after it shut off (aka screen went out) and when I slipped it in the case it came back on, and I am positive that I didn't accidentally press the power button.

I use either the power button on the face of the phone or the shutdown option on the applications screen. The problem has happened with both.
