    My iPhone 4S seems to do this at least once a day - blank screen (having been locked/timedout) and won't come alive to button presses.

    I know how to reset it - both buttons, 10 seconds etc etc, but I was lucky not to experience this on my 4, or 3GS.

    With it happening so frequently, I'm worried its a hardware fault.

    I haven't yet restored, but I'm going to. Just wondered if anyone was noticing this more on ios5/4s ?

    Just read this thread...

    and I have a 'panic' entry in diagnostics and usage.

    So looks like I have faulty hardware :(

    Yes, this is a hardware(iPhone 4S) issue, and you should take it in for a replacement.
