There is no "force shutdown" as far as I know, but you can force a reboot by holding down the power button for about 15 seconds.

You can't change this. Simple solution: Don't shut down your phone any more (except when it runs out of battery). If you switch off your screen only, your phone will go to sleep and won't consume much power. If it still eats too much battery, consider disabling wifi, background data, sync or even switching to airplane mode. As noted in the comments the logo ...

The easiest solution would be to simply remove the battery. As far as I know, holding down the power button on the Galaxy Nexus doesn't force it to power down.

Natively, there is no way to schedule shutdowns and boot ups of the Android system. If you do decide to root there are applications in the Play store that can shedule a shutdown (you may even be able to make your own busybox script instead). However booting up will never be possible the way Android handles shut downs because when Android shuts down, it is ...

There are many 3rd-party apps available on the Market that allow you to set up actions (toggle cell data on/off, for example) at specified triggers (e.g. on a timer.) Tasker and AutomateIt are great examples. If you have a specific data limit on your plan (e.g. 3GB per billing cycle), a more advanced app like 3G Watchdog would be a better choice. It ...

I had the same behaviour, related to frequent "driving mode" madness. I don't know if the driving mode is an effect of the same cause or not, but when one stopped the other did too. What I did to stop it (some might be BS, but It didn't do it a second time, so I can't find out what was the help) Dry it off (some rain might have gotten into the USB port) ...

IMPORTANT: Make a backup before trying any of the following steps! Usually the animation video is stored at: /system/media/video/shutdown You can rename this to something else. Or delete all the files from there. If it's not there, check /system/customize/resource/ or /data/local/ May be it can be found there. In some cases shutdown animation may be ...

This is not possible. The reboot command requires root access.

Automatic shut off can mean any of these; too many running applications running in the background. (Start your your phone in CLOCKWORLD and select to clear CACHE) refrain from charging your phone while playing games and running so many applications as this may speed up the aging of your battery. maybe its time you replace your battery if the above doesnt ...

..setup a schedule for automatic device shutdown... I found an app named Timerandroid in the Play Store. Seems that's what you're looking for. But you need to have root access.

Power On You can simply enable Wake-on-LAN on your computer through BIOS setup, then use any of the several WOL apps to send the power-on command over the network. Some apps like SyncMe also include WOL functionality, so a separate WOL app may not be needed. Shutdown on Windows In general it will involve some server utility installed on the computer, and ...

If your network card can use Wake-On-LAN and/or is supported, and is remotely accessible, then yes, it is quite possible to achieve it (wake-on-lan apps are in abundance on the play store), taking into account of security considerations which is outside of the scope of this site, double check and make sure no other service is on that public facing PC ...

If your host supports wakeup on lan you can use some of these apps.

As others have said, the boot animation (Samsung logo) you see during boot is only the pretty face to the bootstrapping going on in the background. That being said, you can in fact change that animation if you don't mind rooting.

Yeah My Samsung Galaxy S2 behave like that sometimes... I thought I pressed the power button for quite too long (I was using an annoying skin fit cover). But now that you mention it, Yes it happens. But ever since I am using Amzer covers there has never been a problem like that. Yes the some weird app eats up memories and shuts down the phone, but it is not ...
