    hi, i rarely have the need to turn the phone completely off but i did attempt it last night it came up with the "power off shutting down box" with the spinning "thinking wheel" and the screen went black but when i came to turn it back on 3 hours later it still had exactly the same thing on the screen "power off... shutting down"

    the only way to completely cycle the power then was to remove the battery

    any ideas why this might be?

    I am going to guess there was some task that wouldn't die properly although I would have thought it would have timed out and just shutdown regardless. Did you try turning it off properly after rebooting with the battery re-installed?
