Power Control

When I tap the "Power Off" icon on the desktop I get a new screen that has the icons; ""Turn Off", "Standby" and "Restart". The "TurnOff" and "Restart" icons work properly, but when I tap "Standby" the unit restarts. Is there a fix for this?

Re: Power Control

Thiss app is only shortcut and this is bundle with os installation , to fix it may yo must reinstall os ...
I do not understand why RIM does not create this app separately and put them in appworld.

Re: Power Control

I hadn't heard (and don't believe) that reinstalling the OS will fix anything.

This is a simple bug, nothing more.

Personally, I delete the Power Off icon, and simply use the dialog that pops up when you tap on the battery icon in the system tray. It has the same three options, but they work as expected.
