I have a Samsung Galaxy S with  Android 2.2. In order to power off the
phone, I must press and hold the  power off key. I would like to
simulate this action from a Java code. Can I do it?
Best regards,

 Only if you modify the firmware, or possibly root your phone. Normal
SDK applications cannot power off the phone.
