Power down in this case means battery removal too as it has a standby for the 
phones that good for an hour or so.  AARIS modem, whatever that means.  No 
docs with it.  A mini cd that contains the legal crap in 23 languages of 
course.  Like Bill said 400 years ago, first we kill all the lawyers. ;-)
