I bought it at Radio Shack. I purchased an extended warranty, but not sure that I want to exchange it. Not just for this one issue. I actually thought a lot of people were having this problem with the delayed hold down time. The impression I got from past threads was that ten seconds was standard for everyone, and the manual was just incorrect. Maybe I should reconsider doing a exchange. I suppose I should think about that some more.

Here's a question...


When the Stiletto is working it goes into kind of a heibernate mode and you have to click (quick) once to wake it back up and then hold it down to turn it off. If you just hold the button down while it's in low energy mode (which it will be after a few seconds of playing), it does take forever to turn off. Try quick clicking to make it light up and then holding it down to power it off. A lot quicker.

Start up for me takes at least 30 seconds.

I'll experiment a little.

Do that- when it's playing it goes into an energy saving mode and you have to wake it up. You can quick click to wake up, quick click again to sleep and hold down (after the first click) to turn off.

I really find that if I want to do a hard shut down. I have to put the switch in the lock position first, then hold down. Ten Missisippi. If I don't put the switch in lock position first. It will just go into sleep mode. My experimenting continues now.Edit- more like eight Missisippi

After wake up. I have to put it in lock first to turn off. Long hold. After wake. If I put switch directly down it just goes to sleep mode.

After wake, if you put the switch down and hold it it should turn off within 5 seconds.

Maybe my switch is not working properly. Everything else on the unit seems to be working just fine though. Hmmm....

My radio Shack has them in stock. I think I'm going to do a exchange. What the heck you only live once. Thanks for all your feedback.

Okay mine is working like it suppose too. Now that I have actually played around with it some I have found it is working correctly. I was able to recreate it not shutting down though. The issue seems to be, hit the display button to bring it to full brite, then hold the power button down. I found it actually shuts off in about 4 to 5 seconds. I was often times just grabbing it and holding the button down. If you do this it won't always shut down holding down the power button. But now that I know the sequence, it does it every time.

Yes, the display seems to be the key to a proper shut down. I always hit home first and then hold down for 4 secs or so, never as long as ten seconds. But I keep mine in the home dock most of the time so for people doing that I see no reason to ever shut it off. I have to assume that the charger will give it a full charge eventually even in sleep mode. If you have to have it right away there is always the second battery which is always charged.

Well I did the exchange. Activated. Updated. Now my bats are charging. Everything appears to be working just fine now. The on/off switch seems to be responding better for me now. Thanks for your input again BMF. Edit- Since I own the home dock. I had two AC adapters. One I did not like it had this high pitch sound. So I put the bad one in the mix on my exchange. Now I have two adapter that work properly.

I really don't care about having to hold down the button. However the button could have been designed with a rubber coating. I find the combination of a metal button sitting somewhat flush with the unit makes it difficult to use.
