    Sometimes, and only sometimes when I power off my phone at night - the light in the 4 buttons (home,menu,back,search) are still on. How can this be ?

    Possibly because the phone doesn't really turn off, it just goes into hibernation mode. The only way to really turn it off is a battery pull. I'd try that.

    Mine does the same thing, I charge my IS every night, if you leave it, the home lights turn off after a minute or so, not with the USB plugged in though, if you charge with the home lights on they will stay on until you power up.

    Hi

    Same issue with mine.

    Surely there is something wrong? I can't be expected to yank the battery out every time I want to charge it and I don't think it is good for the battery to be charging and supplying power to these lights at the same time. :thinking:

    EDIT: Probably should have checked the forums a bit more first. On an EVO forum, similar problem, somebody mentioned fastboot. Check Settings > Power > Disable Fast boot. Your phone will take longer to boot but it will switch off properly.
