it just did it again! this time i decided to look at the memory settings then the running programs & it looks like it's the active sync that keeps looking for the pc. can anyone tell me how to set this to manual?:-(

Is it possible that you're putting it to sleep rather than turning it off?

wee eddie there seems to be only a standby button on it (top right) if you click here i havn't found a way to shut it down like i would with a pc

Just an idea ~ Try holding the Standby Button for a while ~ that's how my Bluetooth gets turned off!

sorry only trying to help;(

I reckon that we both thought that it would be the logical place to look. I can't imagine why there is nothing in there
