    As the title says really, I can get it on stand by but I can't turn it off. I wonder if I am doing something obviously stupid. :confused:

    Any help would be much appreciated. thanks!

    Hold the power button down (keep holding) until a menu appears, select power off (unless you're having some other problem and I'm being stupid).

    I had this issue once where it took over 3 mins to power off, ended up taking the battery out.
    had slow shutdowns since but never one that took so long

    Mine takes on average 10mins to shut down.
    I installed advanced task killer and even if I kill the majority of apps running before I switch off it still takes ages.

    Thanks for the advice. It was something completely stupid. The cheap cover I bought was covering the button and wouldn't let me press down enough to turn it off!
