    I've had the iPhone 4S since launch but during the past week it has shut down 3 times just by itself. All 3 times the only way I can get it to boot again is by holding down the power and home button. The power button does nothing at all and plugging it into a power outlet or my mba does nothing. Every time it boots back up it shows that the battery is not empty or even in red, so that's definitely not the issue.

    Has anyone else experienced something like this?

    Mine did this twice in the first week I had it. I contacted Apple and they said I should restore it. I did, and set it up as a new phone (rather than from a backup). That was 3 weeks ago, and the problem has not happened again. Battery life also improved after the restore, so well worth trying.

    I had this happen, exactly as the OP described, but on an iPhone 4. I don't think the 4S hardware is the problem.

    Near as I can tell, there was an app that hung things up, or it might have been an OS thing. It only happened to me once tough, and not at all since getting my 4S.
