    Can you turn off your Playbook without pushing the off/on button?

    I know how to turn on the Playbook without pushing the off/on button.

    But I don't know if there is a way to turn off the PB without pushing the off/on button.

    Yes...on the ALL tab, there's an icon for power off/restart.

    This will turn the PB off, not standby.

    Remember, the PB won't charge when it's off.

    Yes. As of OS 1.0.1.1710, there is a Power Off app.

    I believe the button was there in the original 1690 firmware.

    You plug it in and it turns on. Although, I have read about PB's getting bricked because of it dying. I've had mine die fully twice and both times I plugged it in and it turned on and started charging.

    Power off app should include Stand by option

    It did out of the box. When it forced me to update out of the box, I had WiFi problems and went to restart it and the "Stand By" option was there. Once it updated it was gone.
