    i am collecting findings to see if this is a widespread issue or if its just me

    would appreciate other members testing this on their iphone 4s (i have white. at&T if that matters)

    1.)
    turn the screen off by pressing the top button. then leave ur phone alone for a couple minutes and press the home button so that the lock screen comes up. take note of the response time from when you press the home button and when the lock screen actually comes up.

    2.)turn your screen off by pressing the top button. immediately afterward press the home button so that the lock screen comes up . again take note of the response time from when you press the home button and when the lock screen actually comes up.

    do you notice a lag in response with the first method ? the second method for me yields a very fast response,but the first method the screen takes a bit longer to come up after pressing the home button...

    anyone else?

    I think any "delay" attributed to waking your phone from pressing the home button while it's in sleep mode is a faulty home button.

    I have noticed the lag if you have triple push on for the home button. I have no lag on mine, but I noticed that with my iPhone 4

    I guess there is a slight lag but who cares. Does this warrant a replacement phone? Not in IMO. Just enjoy your phone and stop looking for problems.

    These are not separate "methods". The only difference is that you wait a bit longer before you press the home button for the #1. This is normal behavior because your phone went to sleep mode in #1 and the phone is in idle mode (not sleep yet) in #2. It takes a slight delay to wake up from sleep (as demonstrated in #1).

    Ok I'll play. Yep I have a delay in step 1. it's a fraction of a second however. In step 2 there is no perceptible delay.

    Ok, I'll try it out too.

    There is a slightly longer delay when brining the screen back up after it's sat here for a minute. However, please note, that we're talking about a delay in the range of .3 to .5 of a second. I'm fairly certain that this is because the iPhone is truly asleep, versus pushing the home button right away after hitting the top button.

    No issue here..the phone is simply waking up and bringing it's systems back to life. Simply nothing more than battery management...

    There is a fraction of a second difference. Does this mean my phone is broken and I have to return it???

    Why is it an "issue" if the phone is taking fractions of a second longer to wake if left to sleep for a minute, as opposed to immediate response when re-awakened immediately?

    If it took say, a second or longer, or required multiple button presses to work, then that's a problem. In fact I remember my old iPhone 3G acting like that in the bad old days of OS 3.x.

    Also: I tried it on my 4S. I don't notice any difference or lag. And it's much more responsive than my old iPhone 4.

    My phone has been on my bed untouched for about an hour now and I just woke it up and noticed a little lag compared to trying it right after.

    if this is the case then shouldnt EVERYONE experience a delay?
    why are the majority in this thread saying "nope no delay"

    why does this sleep mode only affect my phone and a few others?

    Their phones probably weren't actually in "this sleep mode."

    There's no conspiracy here, so just keep on using your phone. If it bothers you so much, return it and go Android.

    I have a slight lag that's a fractional second. Am I going to sleep over it? Am I going to return it? NO.

    BTW, thank you for wasting 5 minutes of my life.
