    Hi,

    Is there any app that will make the phone ask for a swipe or gesture before allowing it to shutdown? Something like the iPhone.

    My Note II has a tendency to shutdown by itself while sitting in my pocket. Not sure if it's because the power button was held down.

    First, you have to confirm you want to turn off phone after long pressing the power button so I'm not sure what a swipe or gesture would accomplish. Secondly, maybe set up security for your phone, then when the power button is mistakenly pressed, the phone will not turn off
