    Hey guys!

    This weekend my iPhone 6's sleep/wake button turned weird. To start out with my iPhone acted as if the button was been pressed and hold down constantly. It would randomly and often show the "slide to power off" screen and would most likely take a screenshot every time i woke it up using the home button. Then, the next day, the sleep/wake button stop working at all and my only solution to work around this was to activate the AssistiveTouch feature. Just when I was about to go to sleep that same day, it returned to it's "always pressed and hold down state".

    The next day (which would be yesterday) the button had again stopped working completely, so I did a backup of the phone through iTunes and hereafter a full restore the DFU-way. Unfortunately this didn't fix it and the button was still not working.

    This morning I was at the gym working out and I noticed that whenever i had my Apple earplugs plugged in AND was playing music (from Spotify) the sleep/wake button would behave just normal. So as soon as I pulled the earplugs the button would stop working again. Retested it a few times and the earplugs + music seemed to fix it. That was until I arrived at work, where the button returned to the "seemingly always pressed and hold down state" after being fully recharged. So, the button has actually been working this whole day, but whenever I wake up my iPhone using the home button it takes a screenshot. It also randomly wakes up no and then. The "slide to power off screen" is not showing up that often, though.

    What do you think?
    Since it still under warranty (we have two years by law here in Denmark), I'm thinking about bringing it in, but I'm afraid they will reject it because the behavior is "too random".

    Cheers!
