    Help! Once I did the system update, my droid won’t allow me to go completely to silent mode, its always on vibrate. How do I easily turn all sounds off with out having to go all the way into sound settings? I tried holding the power button but I only have the power off option.

    I used to do this all the time. But now, when I press and hold the power button, the only option I get is Power Off. Other defaults seemed to have changed as well. Help!
