    Newbie question: how do I properly shutdown my android 2.1 epad? If I hold the power button for only a few seconds, it goes to a blank screen but the blue light stays on, which I believe is just sleep mode. I don't get the little popup screen asking if I want to shutdown the device.
    So the only way I know to shutdown is to hold the on/off button for 10 seconds. Am I doing it the wrong way?
    Thanks for the help.

    On the zt-180 you just need to press it and let go to see the shutdown window. Usually when you hold the button down it causes a reboot

    I tried just pressing it quickly and the same thing happens. The only thing in my settings that I have changed is I put SleepMode at Never, but I doubt that has any cosequence.
    I found one other way to get the shutdown screen, I use the padlock icon on top near the time, I either get the sleep mode, but if i flick the icon right, then I finally get the popup screen to shutdown the device.

    well on my unit i have the timeout set at 10 minutes. so you can experiment with that.

    I can try that but I believe the timeout will just put it to sleepmode.
