The swipe from top frame to bottom frame or vice-versa only works from standby mode, not full power off. A touch of the power button should put you in standby mode (that is what I am having a problem with). Holding the power button until the power off dialog appears is full power off.

I am facing the same problem, i downloaded 1710 and seems to be working better. Now i cant put it in stand by using the power button, i just set it to go to sleep after 5 min i believe and leave it ON all the time. I agree, the button will have a short lifespan. RIM should do something to compensate for this flaw in the design.

You know, they could pretty much elimiate all the complaints about the silly power button by coming up with a decent gesture to put the PB to sleep. That's 95% of what I use the bower button for. Maybe someone on the development team is listening??
