| | strange sleep mode - hidden feature (?)
Please Login to Remove!
I know how to lock the BB (it does it itself after 2 minutes)
I know about the sleep mode button
But this is a new/different behaviour:
I keep the BB in my back pocket. Before I put it there, I lock it.
Now, in some cases, when I pull it out, it seems to be kind of dead first (also, no calls come in or new emails), but then, when I press the right and left button and some other random keys, it comes up, nearly like a complete reboot (the red splash screen of Vodafone appears), and asks for my password.
However, it does not ask for the PIN of the SIM-Card, also, it comes up much faster then if I would hit ALT-SHIFT-DEL, and, it does not check the security software, It only ask for the password, then then turns on the radio
(If you reboot a BB, it first will ask for the PIN and then for the password - but this is not the case here).
First I suspected, that due to pressure applied to the BB when in the pocket, the device crashed. But meanwhile I think, there must be some magic key combination hit accidentally, which shuts down the BB, disabling the radio in addition to normal sleep mode.
Has anyone else experienced a similar thing ?
Is this a hidden feature or a defect ?
