That's definately wrong, even if I have no iCade.
Some circuit must be constantly closed, I guess, and this drains the batteries.
Also, the button sounds broken. You should exchange it.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I'm sure there was no ill-meaning, but this is posted in the wrong category.
