whenever i try to power off it just turns itself straight back on? its done this since before i restored it.....and updated from 1.1.1 to 1.1.4.....i try to turn it off normally...hold down 2 buttons, it gives me the option to power off and i slide it across....it turns off and then i see the Apple logo and its turning back on....any ideas?

Well you shouldn't need to use the home button to power off, only if you want to do a soft reset by holding the top and home buttons. Try just holding the top button and turn it off. I bet that because you're holding both buttons it appears as if you're sliding to power off but by holding both buttons together you're just resetting the phone.
