- So as of late I have went to power off my BB and it will tell me the next power on date and time (my alarm) but never seems to shut down completely, even when I go to the little power off icon and say Full Power Off". Can someone help me or tell me why it only shuts off when I do a battery pull?08-08-08 10:32 AM

Does that help, or have I missed your point entirely?08-08-08 10:39 AM
I am not exactly sure what the issue is here... but when you power off the device with the power button, it only makes the Berry enter into a low-power mode. The device never truly powers off! Once you press the power button again, it obviously turns back on. I am confused08-08-08 10:40 AM
I always considered not doing this, in case I get an emergency call or something along those lines... but have not been motivated enough to switch yet!08-08-08 10:47 AM
- It all depends on what you mean by power down completely. If you want a program to turn the device back "on" at a certain time, then obviously the device has to be running to execute the program. If you pull the battery, then the program can't run to turn it back "on." Devices like BlackBerry's are designed to go into a low-power consumption state that turns off displays and radios and maybe even slows down the processor, without being fully powered off. That feature is what allows them to "instantly" turn "on," as opposed to the lengthy booting process of a PC.

- My 8830 power button does not make any distinction between "turn off" and "full power off," so I'm not sure how to answer your question. If you are asking what the power consumption is in the off state, I don't know. I suppose you could fully charge your device, unplug it from the charger, leave it off for a couple of days, then turn it on and see how much the battery had discharged. That would be an interesting experiment to conduct, but I never leave my device unused for that long!08-08-08 03:04 PM
