    I have been trying to have my bold go into standby since the new 5.0 OS. I have purchased AddOnis but haven't been able to have it work successfully.. Batterylife on the bold as we know is definitely less than the best.

    Have anyone of you guys got it to work and simply holstering the blackberry isn't what I'm referring to but the true STANDBY function, I'm presently running Willyboy's Hybrid 4.0. So users running a Hybrid and who have got the true standby function to work are welcome to post.
    Mybe there's an app out there cause I've almost tried everything.Addonis seems to work fine with every BB but the Bold.
    Thanks.

    At some point in OS5 they switch the standby option. You can try hold down the "a" key and see if this is what you are looking for.

    Well holding down the 'A' button dims the backlight and locks the keypad. In essence I guess, keypad lock. Not the standby function.

    There are a dozen + threads on this. The standby and lock features have been changed. Lock and standby have been incorporated into one feature. Here are a few threads for you to read through with detailed explanations:

    I'm aware of the threads but to date Addonis is all that works but not with the bold. Was wondering if anyone with a bold running 5.0 has got it to work.

    Addonis and QuickPull do not work on Bold 9000 with OS 5.0.0.411 (I think that's the correct OS number) and up due to the changes listed in these threads. But your phone will go into standby by using the lock feature either through password or mute button or a third party "lock" app like LockPlus. And the only way to re-boot the device is by doing it manually either with a battery pull or alt/caps/del.
    And someone please correct me if I am wrong but holstering the device puts the phone in standby automatically.

    I also think Addonis released an OS5 version that had an option for the standby changes. You might want to check to make sure you have the latest version.
