    Moto Droid: How do you shut this thing off to charge? Mine turns on whenever I plug it in at night and I cannot shut it off.

    On the top of the phone is a power button, hold it till it shuts off.

    You dont have to shut it off to charge it.

    go to screen timeout in your settings and make it how you want it...assuming youre talking about the screen staying on after plugged in.

    I would like it to power off so no one wakes me during the night.

    It turns on if ya do. The bbest way to do this if thats your issue is people waking ya. Hold the power button afew secs then when the menu pop up click on silent mode. Your phone will be silent all night long!

    So there is no OFF off? I find I power down and then I hear "DROID", meaning I received an email or an IM

    Oh, there is an Off, sure enough, even on the EVO, just hold the power button once it is un-locked and the it will give you some silence options and the power off feature at the top of the list.

    Thanks!

    There are 3 options
    1. power phone off, kind of defeats using the phone as an alarm however.
    2. place phone in silent mode, don't forget to un-silence it :eek:
    3. There is an app for that! A couple come to mind Foxyring, locale

    When the DROID is connected to a charger, it will not power off.

    There are various apps in the market that allow you to set up schedules so that you can silence the ringer(s) / notification(s) at certain times of the day, or based upon your location, or based upon if you are connected to WiFi, etc. I personally use Locale (a lot of people say it is not worth the $10 that it costs, but to me it is - it is the most versatile of all the applications out there, but there is at least one that ranks a very close second - Tinerrific.

    And then there is tasker, and for notifications specifically, as mentioned above, Foxyring

    no that means the SD card is unmounted and you can take it out of your phone if you want to.

    just slide the unlock to the left instead of to the right to silence it....easiest way. Then I turn it upside down so that the light doesn't bother me if someone calls or any other event happens to turn the phone on.

    AIRPLANE MODE . This shuts off all wireless connections. Unless you put on airplane mode and then turn wifi back on.
    Go to settings, wireless&networks. Its the first option. Beautiful widget has a widget for this as well.
