I was wondering if there is a way to set the phone to not turn on so easily????? Here is the skinny, When I turn the phone off, it does so normally but as soon as it turns off, it turns on with a slight press of the "power on" button. Being new to blackberry and the fact that putting my BB in its case and mistakenly pressing the power on button for a split second, turns the power on and I wake up to a bb that has been on all night. I know I can set the auto on/off functions but I dont need my bb on all day. All the other phones I had in the past would require a 2-3 second power on button press in order for that to happen.. Any sugestions? BTW my phone is the pearl 8120

A few solutions, not all of them may be practical though

Has this been solved yet? Indeed I desire the following two features:
1. A complicated wakeup button-press combination. It must be more than just a single large easily-pressed button.
2. A way to mimic the state of "battery completely yanked out", but without opening the back of the device. For now I can use insulating fabric to squeeze between the battery and the device contacts, so that I can keep the battery in place but have still have it shut off. A full solution most likely must be solved with a hardware change, so I plan to do some drilling and soldering to see if I can switch on and off the contacts without having to open the back case.
