    Just got the phone yesterday and...

    I can't find a few things that I need. Firstly, how the heck to you get the thing to reboot? I was reduced to removing the battery, but I think there must be a better way.

    Secondly, how do you get the screen to not go dark when it's attached to external power? I couldn't find that on my Galaxy Tab either, but ignored it.

    So far, I'm a happy camper. I got a non-motorola standard dock to hook up to and was pleasantly surprised by the HDMI plug and socket that was included. Now, if only I had something I could plug it into...

    I've been installing apps and having fun. If anyone has any suggestions about apps, I'm willing to learn.

    TIA
    Z.

    Hold down the power button, and you'll get a pop-up, with a power off option.
    I have used an app called Widgetzoid to keep the screen on, while under power. I'm sure there are other ways.

    Thanks, I tried the hold the power down yesterday, but I must have not been paying attention.

    I'll give widgetzoid a try.

    Thanks again.

    To keep the display on while charging on the Atrix MB860 go to settings, then applications,then developement. In developement there is a check box for stay awake while charging.

    Hey there.... Welcome to the forum.

    For reboot, I use 'quick boot' from the market. You have to be rooted though.




    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, that is perfect.

    I tried widgetsoid and I've never felt so stupid in my life. I watched the video and tried to follow along, but what he was doing and what I was seeing were completely different. And I wrote a lot of programs in my 30 years in IT. Harrumph

    I'll go back again once I've had more time to get acclimated to android.

    Also tapatalk - I've seen some sigs that mention tapadatrix. Is that a different flavor or just a joke?

    TIA
