Omnia II won't stay "off"

Hi all, got a new issue with the O2. When not connected to power, it doesn't stay "off". Well, for about an hour or two after disconnecting (sometimes less) it work properly. But then I hit the lock button to power down the screen, and within 1-10 seconds it lights up again. Then when it times out and shuts itself off, it lights itself right back up again.

I'm undecided whether this is a hardware or software problem. I wish there was a logfile somewhere that would list the event which caused the device to light up...

I guess my first try will be a factory reset (auggghhhh!!). But then I have to load all of my customizations again. Sigh.

Anybody have any clues or advice??

Thanks...

Re: Omnia II won't stay "off"

Im having the same problem from time to time. Im wondering wether the problem is connected with fully discharged battery. At list this hypothesis fits to my remembering of the circumstances when it happened.

Re: Omnia II won't stay "off"

Just two days ago, my Omnia started behaving normally again. Weird. My phone is company-owned, and they won't give me a new one because the Omnia is out of warranty, and I'm not due for an upgraded from VZ until August. So their option was to give me a used blackberry. I chose to stick with the Omnia, and carry around a portable charging pack until August.

Along the "battery" theory, I have gotten occassional messages about the phone not recognizing the battery and saying it's a third party battery, or something like that. But it's the stock battery from day 1. Maybe if it starts acting up again I'll replace the battery- unless it's really close to August!
