    Does anyone else have a sticky lock/sleep/awake button (on the top right of the phone)? My lock button likes to stay in the "lock" position much longer than I want it to, long enough where the "iPhone Shut Down" screen pops up occasionally. Anyone else with this issue? Going to the apple store tomorrow.

    Edited for clarity.

    Do you mean the power button? On the top right hand side?

    Correct. That's also the lock button, since you click it once and it locks the phone.

    I researched this a bit and it looks like the iPhone 5 had a similar issue, though never mine. Anyone besides me? This might just be my phone, I guess...

    I'm having this problem with my 5s. But the difference is that my power button is OK.

    I took it into Apple and they just exchanged it for a new one. The Apple Genius Bar tech said that it was the first one he had seen with the issue, but Apple wants to take it back anyway to check for defects, since the Home "button" was also not responding properly. New phone for me, I'm a happy camper.
