    Should I be turning off my phone at night?

    I've been just leaving it on and putting it in the dock to use as a bedside clock. Should I turn it off sometimes or is that not necessary? I usually turn off my computers and playstation when I go to bed. Not sure if I need to do that but it makes me feel better, like they're going to bed with me.

    I wouldnt turn it off. You might miss an important phone call. I would simply make sure it is re-charging, or make sure no apps are running in the background to burn-up the battery. The Android OS programmers claim that programs in the background dont use up the battery, but they do. I have tested it myself. I use Android Task Killer to stop all running programs before I leave my phone for the night.

    o.k. cool, I'll just keep it on then. Yeah, I too have to do a hard re-boot sometimes. Actually, since the OTA (which I did manually) the phone itself has completely shut down and rebooted for no apparent reason a couple times. I swear I'm having more buggy issues now than I was before the update but thats for another thread. Thanks guys.
