Default Sometimes my Galaxy Nexus starts in ODIN MODE, why?

Sometimes my Galaxy Nexus starts in ODIN MODE. I don't know what that is other than that it seems to have with flashing and rooting to do. I see a huge start button that I can't press. And maybe that's good.

Why does my phone sometimes start in ODIN MODE? When it does, should I just shut it off?

I'm not sure what ODIN MODE is either, or what its purpose is. To get to this mode, you have to be pressing down the Volume Down key and the Power key simultaneously when your phone is off. To press the START key in ODIN MODE, you have to click the Power key, as that is where the arrow is pointing to. If you don't want to get back into this mode for any reason, try to avoid pressing multiple keys at once when turning your phone on.

LOL! Okay, I know it's messing with your phone, but that is some epic nonsense right there
