MY BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK LIGHTS UP WHEN TURNED OFF

Hi again.

 

Recently I've been noticing that my PlayBook is very slow around Flash games (like the ones made by Flipline Studios) and sometimes it does something even more disturbing.

 

After I turn it off (I KNOW I TURNED IT OFF PROPERLY), then leave it, I'd wake up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water, walk into the living room, and see it sitting on my table with its screen lit up a dark blue color. The light isn't noticeable at first, but when you look closer you can tell it's definitely there.

 

Have any of you guys experienced this problem before? Do you think it's a virus?

Hmm, well usually this occurs when it's unplugged, so I'm not sure exactly. 

 

Also, this happened again today when I was uploading a YouTube video from my tablet to the computer (via USB cord) to the Internet. Except, it lit up midway through when I was browsing the videos, instead of when it was turning in off. Eventually I had to force Shut Down by holding the power button, since it seemed to be frozen. 

 

I have practically never mistreated my tablet, exceptions being letting my fingerprints smudge the screen and the one time I dropped it very gently on the couch.
