    So, when my iPhone is in standby mode and I push the power button to unlock it sometimes it immediately locks the screen again which is really annoying. The unlocking and locking right away only happens when trying to unlock, not when trying to lock. Does any of you have any idea what might cause this?

    It seems like contact bounce due either to a bad switch or you push very shaky :). Does it really happen every time? It happens to me from time to time and it's because I was shaking a little when I pressed it...so it gets a double press.

    This happens to me from time to time, but it isn't really anything more than a slight nuisance. I just hit the home button if it does do that. Sometimes it even results in a screen capture of my lock screen.

    I get this about two to three times a month as well. Hopefully it's just a minor software glitch that will go away with future OS updates...
