    I was wondering if anyone out there had experienced their dps24 not powering off with the on/off button. I finally had to just unplug it to get it to shut off.

    Hi, Andy. Did the problem persist or did the reboot solve the issue?

    Hi Felonious Punk, thanks for responding. I unplugged it and left it unplugged overnight and that seemed to correct it.

    It may just be a one-off glitch, but it may be a warning sign of problems with the sd-card. When you power off using the correct procedure, the system saves any pending operations to the card. I don't know for sure, but if there's an issue with the card, it may prevent it shutting down.
    If it was me, I would backup the data (which I hope you are already doing regularly!), and then do a full format on it.
    I would also confirm you are running the latest firmware.
