Default How to fully turn off phone?

Please Login to Remove!

How do you fully turn off a BB 8700r?

The last time I went on vacation, I turned off the phone using the power button, and never used it until 5-6 days after. At that point, the battery had almost run out.

Do I have to go into the applications menu, turn off wireless, and then turn off the device? Does turning off the device using the physical button, or the applications option of "turn power off" make a difference?

I'm going on vacation again in a couple of days, and while I want to keep my phone with me, I also want to fully turn it off and only check it a couple of times if necessary.
