I HAD the same problem. In MY case the issue was a poorly fit case. The case was putting pressure on the power button causing it to stick. Once I took the Amaze out of the case, it functioned perfectly.
So I suggest, testing the phone outside of any protective case. If this does not solve the problem -- then I have no answer for you. Perhaps the button is sticky? Of course if you are case-less, again I have no clue.
If you are using the phone without a protective device, then my solution would not appy ... it would seem to be a more serious issue.
