    Last night, I set my Droid X2's alarm to wake me up very early. So this morning, its alarm did not fail me. However, being the sleep lover I am, I snoozed it twice. The second time, I was half asleep and just remembered me press the Home button and tap the screen anywhere (that's the snooze). Before I go on, I set my phone far away from my bed, on my computer desk, where it charges. When its first alarm rang, I had to get up, unplug it from the charger and carry it with me to my night stand, near my bed.
    So, after I woke up from my second alarm clock (other than my phone's), I usually check my phone for messages. However, it did not want to turn on. I pushed and held the hold and home button (not simultaneously) and it still did not turn on. I even removed and replaced the battery, and it did not turn on. I was then forced to charge it, and this is the interesting part: It first re-booted with the normal screen animations, and I left to get something. When I came back, its status LED (not the camera flash) was a steady amber color. What does that mean? And then the plot thickens. I pushed the home button and it turned off. I pushed again, it re-re-booted, with the normal animations again, and its battery indicator was as if the battery is fully dead. What the hell happened? After just two alarm clock rings and a full nights charge, don't tell me the alarm entirely killed the battery (its charge indicator was showing in the red). So what happened?

    Did it charge back up and act normally afterwards? That just sounds like it didn't charge to me (though I've had older style phones from years gone by that would get funky and not charge when I plugged them in.) Your USB isn't loose and the outlet you were plugged into had power?

    It did charge up normally. However, it did seem to charge faster than it normally does, although there is no way for me to make sure that was the case.
    I am sure i plugged my phone in the night before. From my blurry half asleep vision, i did remember the battery meter to be in the green when I snoozed it for the first time.
    But now that you say it, it is a possibility that the phone never charged at all.

    I've had it for less than a month.
