    I did a search but came up empty. Is there an app for un-rooted phones that will allow you to turn the phone off without using the power button? I know i will have to use the button to turn it back on.

    Just curious... But do you need that? You can't use the power button to just turn it off?

    There are some apps out there capable of it, look on XDA and they usually require root. I have a reboot app myself, saves from abusing the power button.

    I've yet to come across anything that will do this. I like the idea too.

    EDIT: I did come across this, but it doesn't have a good rating and I saw one comment that indicated it's not a one-press-turn-off solution.

    Would be nice. I would like to save my power button as much as possible..... Yet another reason I might need to root....
