    My screen all the sudden would not show any widgets or shortcuts. I think it started happening when sliding open the keyboard and the screens rotating. When i would get out of an app each 3 of the screens was just blank with my wallpaper the only thing there and the the menu slider button. Anyone know of a fix or why this is happening?

    Have this problem occasionally as well. Takes about 15 seconds for everything to show back up, and afterward seemed to make the phone run slower.

    Do you happen to have a task killer killing the home app? I had this happen to me today on accident while trying out several different task killers.

    This happened to me after I uninstalled all my other custom home apps (pandahome, home++, etc.). I also have an app called home switcher and it had my default home set to none. I set my default home back to home with that and the problem never happened again.
