QNX RIM has pushed the second update of the QNX-based operating system running on the PlayBook. One of the new features listed? "The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet can now be charged even when fully powered down." Oh my.

So let's waste power and never clean up the device's state instead.


Actually, "turning the device off" often reboots the device, to a state where you got the kernel running in an "acting dead" state, where charging (and detecting when power button is pressed to "turn the device on") can occur.
