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.

2. detect usb connected/disconnected event

Hi all!

 I had read in a lot of forum it is a problem to developers to write a
program witch can detect the connected / disconnected USB event. Here is my

Manifest.xml :

        <receiver android:name=".MyReceiver">
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.ums_connected"


public class MyReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver{
if (intent.getAction().equalsIgnoreCase(
        "android.intent.action.UMS_CONNECTED")) {...}
