There were three versions of OS2006.  So you have OS2006.2.

My 770 spontaneously reboots every now and then, but never turns itself
off.  (I habitually charge it every night.  Well, used to, before I got
a N800).

My mother sometimes has problems turning on her 770.  I hold the power
button for a few seconds, release it, and it boots fine.  There appears
to be a trick to it: if you hold the power button too short, it won't
come up; if you hold it too long, it won't power on either.  Sometimes
it seemed that I had to plug in a charger to get it to see the power
button presses, and I usually attributed that to an empty battery.

My N800 appears to be very stable.  It rebooted once (lifeguard reset
due to crashed dsp_dld).

Interesting: /var/lib/dsme/stats/lifeguard_resets claims I had three
reboots (due to dsp_dld, maemo_af_desktop and dnsmasq).  I never noticed
the other two.
