    Hey guys, just got the phone yesterday afternoon. Rooted last night :)

    Anyways i will be using my phone, set it down for a minute, screen turns off then the phone magically isnt on anymore. I have to do a battery pull to get it back on. The power button will not turn it on.

    any help anyone can give me :) its reallllly annoying


    update



    So it was figured out that is was setcpu that was making the phone act weird, BUT now that there is an overclock kernel out that works(flashed and works perfect) how can i fix the issue of my phone randomly turning off? ive tried profiles but that hasnt helped.

    and please dont say dont overclock

    I had the same problem, once I removed my SetCPU profile for the "screen off" it's been function ok. I tried to keep it on and mess with different values/scales, but I always had problems coming out of sleep and or was forced to do a battery pull. To bad, I was hoping to use that to increase battery life. I must admit, the phone has been gettting better than expected battery life without it!

    I'm wondering if there's a pre-existing power manager that's conflicting with a "screen off" profile...

    Hmmm, I've had setcpu since day 1 of my root and I've not run into this phenomenon. Glad you guys figured it out. Admittedly, without a custom ROM to overclock I probably dont need the setcpu right now as Im not sure my profile has really done much to improve my battery life. As you guys said the SF is getting pretty damn good battery life

    Yeah, me either. And frankly, the battery life is already so much better than the HTC phones it probably wouldnt make that much of a difference anyway

    Yep, SetCPU is probably pointless till we get an OC kernal working, especially since the profiles don't seem to work well with the Fascinate...

    I'm wondering if some of the other variations of the Galaxy S have developed a way to OC or adjust voltage yet? I haven't visited the other forums, but it looked like the Captavate forum has the largest following out of the Galaxy S phone line, may see what they're up to!

    its in the op, but setcpu is making the phone randomly turn off, thats with oc kernel or stock kernel. i want to overclock but it sucks everytime the screen goes off the phone turns off.

    any thoughts?
