O2 Exec Power off (not just standby)?

One final question about the O2 Exec (Im probably doing something wrong, but its driving me mad!!).

Im currently stuck on a night shift at work and the fiddling around with the Exec has led to its battery running low. It is sitting there beeping at me saying its running low. Ive pushed the power button which appears to turn it off, but it just goes into standby mode (as the lights are still flashing indicating low battery).

Is there no way to completely turn the unit off like a normal PC/Phone?! Do I just have to leave to to slowly run out of power in standby mode?!

Thanks :)

PPCs can't be turned off. Standby is the best they'll do. At least with WM5 you won't lose everything if the battery does go flat but best to charge ASAP.

there is a freeware app that turns off the gsm side of the phone , you have to switch off the gsm part or it will still use the battery , switched off and the battery will not be used

or you could just use the phone itself and put it into flight mode, to do the above

Not true in the case of my MDA Vario. It can be turned off completely by pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds. It then comes up with a prompt to confirm that you wish to shut the device down and that some data may be lost. If you answer yes the device switches off.
