    I have had no trouble? but I genrally use the pad too tirn it off whilst i am actually gaming. But whilst I am actually in the front menus it turns off fine. If you hold your finger there for about 2 seconds it turns off.

    I had this with mine until I reliased I have to press the powerbutton down for 4seconds for it to go into standby. I just use the PS button all the time now its easier as it saves getting out of bed :D

    Yup to turn it off you have to keep pressing for a few seconds as it's not instantaneous. Alternatively as already mentioned you can use the PS or home button and choose turn of console in the menue that pops up.

    I think i'll use the controller, don't want to hold it down too long as it resets the HD settings doesn't it?

    Yeah your right. Nothing happens if you just touch it but hold it there and it turns off. Cheers for that.
