Surprised Rooted Sprint Hero issues

I've had my Sprint Hero for almost two years now. It has been rooted for about a year. I used Cyanogen and AWD launcher. The issue I'm experiencing now is that it will not unlock out of the lock screen. I am using Fancy Widgets so I don't know if that is causing any of the issues.
I slide it over to unlock it and it will lag, give me the little vibrate buzz like its unlocking and then just sit there in different states of unlockingness. If I hit the screen off(red butten) it'll go off and than I'll hit it again and it will come on. Basically I have to play this game pushing it on and off each time trying along with sliding screen to unlock it to access the root menu. I was able to run the 'fix force close' option on the root menu but that didn't do anything.
I tried holding the off(red button down) hoping it would give me the option to reboot to no avail.
I'm pretty sure the screen isn't bad b/c it'll give me different views of unlaggingness. Today I had a 5 min span where I could access everything.
Also, it still shows my unviewed emails, text messages and time all are current. I am even using the tether as we speak to connect to the email(it took 5 min if swipping/button pushing to access it)

Any advice? I'm not sure how to do a hard reset. I've pulled the battery multiple times.

Thanks for your help. I'm looking at going to the Photon in a few months....since I'll be staying with sprint.
