Default Is there a manual way to put the Storm in sleep?

Please Login to Remove!

Since you cant charge while the phone is in the holster, is there a manual button you can press or a shortcut to make the phone enter sleep mode to save power?

I am having horrible battery problems and need to figure out a way to start saving some juice....

I was under the impression that like with other BlackBerrys, you could hold down the mute key for a few seconds to put it in sleep mode. Try and that and report back what happens!

tuck it in,

Just kidding, the mute key doesn't do the trick.

For battery issues, reduce screen brightness that helped a lot for me.
