blackberry P'9981 standby mdoe

hi, does anybody know how to put this phone into standby mode? the button on the top only locks the screen. standby mode is similar to putting a blackberry into a holster. thanks.

Hello cron and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for your question.


Locking the screen by hitting the lock screen, it is putting your device in standby. 


The only difference from using a holster is the change of sounds to vibrate (if the setting is enabled). 


Hope this helps to clarify.
