    I've got a 8520 issued by my employer which was sent without a holster so I bought one to suit.

    My BB goes into sleep mode when put halfway into the holster but switches on when completely inserted into the holster?

    I assume there is a settings issue on the BB but dont know what it is, can any one help.

    Go into your settings and check in holster settings. Make sure everything is as it should be. Is the holster you bought a BlackBerry holster?

    if the holster is not designed for your specific model, then the "sleeper magnet" will not be in the correct place, and your berry will not be in standby mode in the holster. Make sure you purchased the correct holster

    there is a magnet mis-alignment somewhere...
    the 'shade tree' fix would be to set your phone to sleep after 10 minutes or so, that way it will sleep in the holster no matter what's up with the magnet.
    the 'by the book' fix would be to return the holster for the proper unit.
