How do you get the TP2 to shut off and not turn back on

when you press the power button?

It is really annoying when I think I turned it off only to have found out when I pull my phone out of my pocket that it turned itself back on and called a bunch of people and sent out a bunch of emails. All from bouncing around my pocket.

Beside the lock function, which I seem to have to navigate through a ton of screens to get to, is there any way to get the phone to just shut off and only turn back on when I press the power button?

Sorry if this has been answered already but I've gone through a bunch of threads and it'll take me forever to dig through all the information.

Edit: By Shut Off I don't mean shut down. Just turn off and turn back on without a reboot.

lockdevice is a great app. i installed it a while back and it was exactly what i wanted. it locks the phone whenever i turn off the screen. and it locks when i try to turn it back on.

Wow!

Lockdevice just trashed my phone. Everything is slow and if I turn the phone off, it doesn't turn back on unless I do a soft reset. Rebooting takes forever now. I can't seem to uninstall it properly. It did something bad to my phone.

that sucks. try getting the full version of sktools. I think the uninstaller in that program is more complete than the usual windows one.

also I dunno what you usually do but my phone keys you just do start --> lock.

Re: How do you get the TP2 to shut off and not turn back on

I got S2U2 to work.

I had it on my old HTC Touch and it worked great. Looks like the pretty much the same good program.

Thanks everyone!
