[Q] Phone doesn't power down, it reboots to ClockworkMod recovery. [Solved for some]
first of all, props to JCase and Team AndIRC. you guys are awesome.
i am, however, experiencing some weirdness. whenever i choose "turn off" from the power menu my phone doesn't power down completely, it instead reboots to clockwork mod. isn't that bizzare? it happens every time with 100% repeatability. to completely power off the phone i have to pull the battery. is anyone else experiencing this behavior? that's so weird, right? i mean it's not really a big deal, but surely this is not the desired result.
at the home screen i hold the power button, choose "power off" and then 15 sec later i'm in clockwork recovery. bizzare.
can anyone help me? thanks to all in advance. c
P.S. as a side note, clockworkmod recovery 22.214.171.124 isn't very TB friendly. i think whomever wrote it forgot the TB has no trackball because by default the power button acts as the "back" button when it should really be the "enter" button. to get an "enter" button you have to wrap-around scroll a couple of times until you get the "Back menu button enabled" message. clockwork's only mode of operation on the TB should really be that the power button acts as "enter" and the back menu button is enabled.
EDIT 1: FIX BELOW
so i posted this question in the development section because it had to do with root and i thought that's where all the root discussion would be. mods moved it here. totally fine. keep it tidy. but then yesterday someone answered the question in a new thread in the development section. go figure. anyway, here's the solution as posted by "dbu":

Hit menu and you will see the button to clear the download cache, hit menu and then settings and you will see the check box to erase recovery.
Thank Slayher guys, not me, he's the one who fixed it
props to dbu and slayher
EDIT 2: MAYBE NOT FIXED
Some are saying that this does not solve their problem. My phone appears to power down when plugged in without going into recovery, but every now and then I do see it go into recovery when plugged in. Others see it every time, so there is still some residual weirdness. Your mileage may vary, as some would say. Who is using FastBoot in the Power settings? Maybe that is causing the phone not to power down as we would expect, but I am not a dev and I am just speculating.
