    Hello all, I am used to powering my phone off while charging it. On the Xperia as soon as I plug in the charger, the device turns back on.

    Is this normal? Is there setting somewhere I missed?

    Thanks much for all help :)

    WHat I do if I dont want to get bugged is put my phone on flight mode. This way at least the alarm will still go off, but for all intents, the phone is "off" :p

    Do you know what sometimes the obvious is right under our noses. Slaps forehead! I never thought of that and now I feel soooo dumb:eek:. No more blinking LED notification lights for me tonight.

    I haven't tried myself but can't the X10 be turned off AFTER you've plugged in the charger?
