Samsung Focus won't shut down...

When I hold down the power button to shut it down, it says goodbye but then loads up again.  I am also having an issue with charging all of the sudden.  

 

Any ideas before I hard reset?

When the phone is plugged into power, it will turn on.  From what I can see, it can't be turned off while charging.

Thank you for chiming in.  Sounds reasonable.  I am having other issues with the phone, namely it was plugged in all night but took no charge.  I was unsure if I should have shut it down.

That happened to mine the first time I charged it.  I have hard reset the device several times and haven't seen that behaviour since then.

Your issue was marked as 'solved'.  Yet when I click on the link it takes me to another post in your thread - but doesn't show a solution to the problem.

 

My Focus restarts every time I try to shut it down while it's plugged in as well.

 

Has anyone actually found a resolution for this?

The behavior is by design.

Before you hard reset your Focus, I had the same charging problem and just removed the battery for about 30 seconds and that fixed the problem also.

My Focus won't shut down whether it's on the charger or not.  It also shows that it is charging whether it is on the charger or not.  Anyone else experience this problem?
