    Okay so here's my problem,

    Going to the gym, put my phone in my bag, into a standard metal locker, finish blasting my guns and then pick up bag....phone is off.

    My Desire is rooted and has happened with Miui and Redux roms.

    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Also can't turn the phone back on using the power button but have to pop out the battery.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated (that includes workout tips)

    :D

    sounds like a dodgy power button keeping the phone from sleeping!!!
    has this ever been in contact with high moisture/water?

    pro tip, for big arms do weighted dips and forced negatives training to fail.

    Hmmm strange as it never happened before rooting (only rooted a week or so ago)

    thanks for the tip, I like to work my way down the dip station from no weights to almost fully assisted, works out to be a few hundred reps and a pair of arms resembling Matt Damon's bottom lip in that scene with Robin Williams from Good Will Hunting.... 'it's ok, it's ok, it's ok.....'

    Yeah Miui and Redux (currently on this Rom) both have trackball wake, which has and is enabled. How does this affect my phone when locked in a gym locker?

    It doesn't. I'm asking if when power won't wake, will trackball?!

    No I tried everything to wake the phone, pushed every button, including holding down the power button, nothing. Had to remove the CM Tough case and pull the battery. I've got a thing in my head that it's gingerbread related, seems to be a lot of niggles with people using 2.3 based roms, this could be one of them?

    the niggles are no more than there are in sense, just you notice them as you have a problem.
    personally i have no issues with the latest GV

    its a wierd one. i would flash another rom and dont restore any of your stuff via titanium and see if it still happens
    I wonder if its something youve restored via titanium backup

    Yeah just downloading RoDrIgUeZsTyLe MIUIMOD V2.9.2 Final-FroYo right now, going to give this a go this week, another thing is gps signal, I know some roms have got their workarounds and that but I'm kinda needing some sat nav this week and it has to be reliable. Will see what this brings then.
