Many people have trouble turning away from their iPhone or BlackBerry for even a few minutes.

But, Reboot, a nonprofit group consisting of Jewish professions, is urging people to turn off their wireless devices at sundown tonight and leave them off for 24 hours, until sundown Saturday.

They are calling it a National Day of Unplugging and it coincides with the Jewish Sabbath or day of rest.

Organizers say the day is to get overworked and overstressed people to rediscover the concept of rest.
