I also tried it with quickreboot (not sure if I have the same app, blue circle with a yellow lightning bolt?). also, does your phone do this? when I shut down using the power button long press, choose power off and then hit ok, it shows the sprint logo with the exploding boxes looking screen, capacative buttons stay lit up for a while as its shutting down, quick reboot just SHUTS DOWN! lol, its like the difference of being on a PC and choosing shutdown or just flipping the switch on the back of the PSU. is it better to shut it down the stock method?
(side note- my palm pre power button started acting up so now I do what I can to use the epics power button as little as needed, which is why I have a screen icon to lock my phone and reboot with quick reboot)
