    I am having the same problem. Screen shuts down while I'm using it, I pick it up to turn it on and the power button doesn't wake it up. Sometimes it will come on after I push it ten/fifteen times. It also pops up the shut down screen CONSTANTLY. It's been updated, it's not rooted and it's pissing me off so much I'm about to smash it into a million pieces. Somebody please help me before I lose my mind :(

    It also will not shut off once I get it going and most times I have to wait for the screen timeout to kick in or take the battery out. I've removed the battery more in the past three months than I have in the past two years.

    Apparently only two people are experiencing this phenomenon and yes I have started pulling my hair out. :mad:

    For the love of God, does nobody know how to fix this problem? I'm going to choke this phone. Will rooting it help? Or is this post on the Ignore All Questions list?
