    I hold the power button for the 3-2-1 countdown til the red Verizon screen comes up and release the button. Screen fades to black with "Blackberry | Classic" displayed on the screen. The keyboard backlight goes out, then the screen itself goes out. I place it on my night stand and go to bed. In the morning, if I swipe the screen, it "wakes up"! It never actually turned off!

    I haven't set any of the advanced features yet and I've only gotten it to truly turn off twice since I took delivery a couple weeks ago.

    What am I doing wrong? When I go to bed at night, I don't need my cell on.

    Hmm, maybe your power button is getting stuck and turning it back on

    Do you put the device on charge when you go to bed?

    The result is the same regardless of whether I use the power button on top of the device or the "Hang Up" button on the Tool belt. That rules out a "stuck" power button.

    The phone is not on the charger when this occurs.

    I have the same bug?
    I figured it was an always on feature (big brother control freak feature) from Verizon.

    I tried the power button in combination with the up and down volume keys - no luck.
    Then tried just holding the volume keys - no luck.
    Then tried the UP volume key with the lock button (on top of the Classic) - that re-booted the device, which was stuck at the Verizon splash screen.
