Market and power button issues

    This just started last night. All of a sudden my phone springs to life from the screen being off. I thought it was because I had a push msg. NOPE! When I try to turn the screen off with the power button it goes off and then comes right back on. So, in order to save on battery and to make sure it won't dial in my pocket, I have to turn the thing completely off (very inconvenient).
    And, now when I click on market it doesn't come on. Just before the market stopped working I tried to download any apps they wouldn't install.

    I don't want to have to do a factory reset on this thing.
    The market issue showed up in my droid x and when I did a reset to fix it, it bricked the device.
    I agree with another member on this. Google makes tons of money and pays their tech guys a pretty good wage to figure these kind of things and to code software on a device to prevent this from happening, where is that money going? It certainly isn't to fix issues with phones.

    It sucks, but it sounds like your going to have to do a factory reset. You could try a soft reset (pull the battery while the phone is on and let it sit for a minute), but I dont think it will help.

    Seems like all phones have their issues

    Instead of a "swear jar", we need a "factory reset" jar. There would be a lot of money in there!

    At least it has gotten easier now that market reinstalls the apps on initial login after a reset.
