Question How to turn off PW?

Hi!

On my Kindle Touch I can turn it off by pressing the power button for a few seconds until the led starts to blink.

It seems that this is not the case with PW. The back light is kept turned on, even after the cover is closed.

Is this correct?

You can't turn off a PW, but pressing the power switch for a moment should put it to sleep, and the light (IT'S NOT A BACKLIGHT - IT'S A FRONTLIGHT!) should turn off. If the light isn't turning off (it does get "stuck" occasionally) restart the PW.

The restart procedure fixed the problem.

Thanks!
