How do you turn off an X?
My X is running the GB leak. Battery was getting low, and I needed to make some calls, later so I shut it off. Hold down the power button on top, then select Shut Down. Unit appears to shut down fine.
Problem is - a few minutes later it starts up again! I did that process three times. It just won't stay off. Is there something in GB that would cause this? Could an application actually start the device? Only possible explanation seems to be that is not completely shutting off in the first place.

That behavior is very unusual. Sounds like something is running in the background -- an app or widget -- that is preventing it to shut down.
You might try a battery pull (battery out, wait at least 1 full minute, battery in, turn on). After it's all up and running again, try to shut it off the regular way. If it still pops back on, take a look at the apps you have downloaded and especially the widgets that may be updating frequently. Try deleting questionable apps/widgets and see if that helps. If you do it one at a time, you can find out which one is problematical.
If none of this works, you might consider returning it to Verizon for a replacement.Always learning ...

Bulldog: From my System Status page, I am running Android 2.3.3, System Version 4.5.588.MB810. Where can I download the 595 version? Thank you.
Rocko: You're a big help. Thank you.
I did another battery pull. Problem seems to be eliminated. Must have been an application that wouldn't die.
