Depending on model and whether rooted - safe mode is accessed by holding down the menu button, then powering on.

I had the Alltell version of the HTC wildfire for three days and my gf was playing ant smasher on it and it froze up. It would not respond to the charger or the power button. I couldn't find anything about it on these forums so I figured it out myself. If you hold down the volume button, the power button and that little circle button at the bottom center of the phone (alltell version only) your phone will reboot. The problem is that the ROM drives are not large enough to allow this extremly small computer to run for a long period of time. I would suggest to allow your phone to turn off at least once every 24 hours.

I had the same problem. Tried this and it worked.

I chose to power it down then when it started to work again I immediately reset it to factory.

Make sure that you have back up for your contacts and files.

Cool Hi guys/gals

New to this forum but I was having similar problems until now

I use the little power management widget and I try to conserve as much battery as possible so I set my screen brightness to its minimum. When I lock my screen it won't come back on. After scratching my head and countless Google searches I set my screen brightness, using the widget, to its middle setting and hey presto the screen comes back on. When I set it back to minimum the screen stays off.

This fixed mine but I'm not sure if it's the underlying cause but it seems to be working fine now. Hope this helps or at least leads to a permanent solution.
