    The Gio seems somewhat sluggish when reacting to a button press after sleeping. So when it's sleeping, press the power button once, then wait at least two seconds. Now the display should activate and you can unlock with a slide.

    If it doesn't, and it's not a battery issue, then there must be something wrong hardware-wise with your phone.

    nah that didnt work could it be how i charged it first time i used it? i read so many different opinions on the first charge and ended up only charging it until it told me it was charged then i took it off the charge. but yeah the only way the phone comes back on is if i leave it for a couple of hours and and it will randomly come back on when i press the power button or i have to take out the battery and put it back in.
