Droid X powers itself back on after a power off??

by dsttexas / January 22, 2012 12:33 AM PST

This now happens almost 100% of the time. At the end of the day when I power off the phone, sometime within the next 3 to 10 minutes it powers itself back up again. A second power off then results in the phone staying off for the night.

Android 2.3.3 System ver. 4.5.605.MB810

I did that (on another OS)

One of our custom apps caused such a thing on another handheld OS. Think over what apps you installed recently and work backwards.

Powers back on

I had that happen to me. Also my HOME button wouldn't work. After going through my apps I found the one causing my problems. It was called "No Lock" which kept the phone from locking or having to use the slider screen. After I uninstalled this app. and rebooted phone it started working fine.

Interesting that you mention this.....

There was a new software patch release by Motorola on Feb 22 to address this issue. I just downloaded it last night and it updated System Software in my Droid X to 4.5.6210. Try going into your phone settings, About Phone, System Updates. If that doesn't work, go to the Motorola internet site and type in keyword "Droid X software". The instructions and details are clearly listed on their website. BTW, I use Verizon. The information is also on the Verizon support page.
