    Power button only does a shutdown...what about restart or sleep or....

    On my old, Pre-Prime, tablet when pushed the power button I got a menu of a number of items such as 'Power off' 'Restart' 'Sleep' and a couple of other options that I can't remember. Is there a way to do that on the Prime? Was that related to Android before ICS, or is it not version related and was related to the tablet.

    Thanks and Happy Monday!

    I believe that if you hold down the power button for 10 seconds while it is on it will restart the Prime. If you just give the power button a quick press it will sleep. Depressing the button for 2 seconds gives you the option to shut down. I'm not sure of any other options.

    I'm assuming your auto-correct change it from 'rom' to 'from'. I think a 'custom from' would be a gift FROM someone that they customized???

    AFAIK
    Hold the power button down - the device will reboot
    Tap the power button, the screen will turn off or on
    Press the power button to turn the tablet off

    I have not run a stock ROM recently, but when I was, a 3 second press of the power button would give a menu for REBOOT or POWER OFF.

    Has this changed?

    I don't think so.

    Quite decisive if I must say.



    So, does it give the menu or not?

    I have always got the shutdown option with a long press, so no change at all as far as I can tell.
