i own a nokia e72. is it possible to fake / simulate the proccess of turning off the phone? so for the phone to shutdown the screen (or at least make it pitch black) and the backlight of the keyboard when selecting "turn off" from the menu. and then, lets say, bring it back with a combination of keys.

when a phone is stolen usually the first thing the thief does is to shut it down. which of course disables all the gps apps and network location based services that can you check online to see where your phone is. it is a window of time before he removes the battery - but this can also be solved if you have those apps to automatically run at start up.

is this possible? is there such an app?

P.S. i am not a developer - i just came here to ask this question. thank you.
