I've tried putting the latest version of Android on ( 2.3.3 ) but that hasn't fixed it.
There is always a little delay when I press the home button before the screen comes on - I hold my breath and hope for the best. I know if it's not going to wake up if the menu and back buttons don't light up.
Yes you're right. Previously I wrote that Android 2.3.3 fixes the problem, but actually it doesn't solve the issue, however it happens much more rarely than with the previous Android OS so it's worth upgrading.
Personally I think it's a little annoying that after pressing the home button you have to wait for the screen turns on...
