    Long time lurker here. recently when i have turned off the playbook using the battery icon. I noticed that the screen was still backlit. i have had to do a hard reset to power it down fully 3 times now. Is there a better way to power it down? Also i wonder if this is why a lot of people are getting flat batteries lately.

    Do you mean fully powered off or just in standby?

    It takes some time to fully power down. Mine sometimes takes a few minutes. Also, if you have it plugged in while turned off the backlight will stay on.

    I know the backlight on my PlayBook will also take bit of time to switch off after a full power down but it does turn off.
    Any recent updates or new apps installed this happened?
    Did it ever work normally?

    No new updates or apps recently. Always worked fine before. guess i'll take it back to pc world for a repair or replacement as it's probably a software issue.
