I've had my D7000 since December and it has just started this behaviour. When I turn it off, the top display and the viewfinder display stay on for about a minute. The meters are off and all other functions are off. I played with the custom setting that sets the time for auto meters off and set it to 4 seconds, however I timed that at around 20 seconds.
Has anyone else seen this? Have I inadvertently changed a setting?
Check your settings in C4 (pg 215 in the manual). Although the way you describe your problem I do not think those settings will help you. If changing those settings has no affect I would send an email to nikon technical and ask them.

Not certain if this relates but if you have taken several continuous shots and turn the camera off the top will still show as the buffer is trying to clear. Once all shots have been "cataloged" (can't think of a better word for this action) the display will become blank.
Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. <><
Thanks Marc and John, I changed the setting for c4 to 4 seconds and it turned off the LCD monitor info display faster. Still the same delay after turning the camera off, and I wasn't shooting a frame at all.
I will either take it back to the shop or try installing new firmware.
Hope you are having some warm weather where you are. Getting cold here, looks like we will have a winter this year!
You can reset the camera, by pressing the buttons with the green dots near them, and holding them for two seconds (lower left, back; far right, top) but many saved settings go back to factory default. There may be an even more "hard" reset, but I forget what it is.
Uploading the newest firmware can't hurt. Just make sure your battery is at 100% charge (much less and the camera will refuse the update)
OK this is weird. Before I did any of the above I ejected my full card from slot 1 and the problem is gone. Even when I reinserted it (still full) the problem did not reappear. I have no idea why, I'm going to hope it doesn't come back. Thanks for the suggestions Dawn.

OK, I recall, once, either removing or inserting a card at the same times I was turning the camera on, and the display stayed on... It was a once off occurence in 8 months of use, so I don't even know how I'd duplicate it.
ALL other times I inserted/removed cards with the camera off, and never a hiccup.
