    When I tried to turn on my iPhone's screen a minute ago, it wouldn't turn on. I tried plugging it into a charger and plugging it into my computer, but nothing has worked. It isn't even showing up in iTunes, so I have no idea what to do. Does anyone have any idea what I should do?

    Why are so many people stuck in DFU mode in Beta 3?

    Same here black screen after gaming Infinity Blade 2, black screen, home button responding and activating Siri, unable to shutdown... plugged to charger, put in DFU (I guess? because of black screen), suddendly come to life at springboard like nothing happened.

    Beta behaviour :)

    It's not beta behavior if the phone is set down somewhere and it's not being used and it goes into DFU mode. That's disturbing.

    That's YOUR phone. The other user posted he had set it down and wasn't doing anything with it only to come back and realize he couldn't turn the screen back on.

    I had the same issue on Beta 1, it would just go into DFU mode when the phone was left idle. But since updating to beta 2 and 3 its not done it since.

    it happened to me about 2 minutes ago.

    Black screen no response from [power] or [home] buttons.

    i tried to plug it in to a wall charger. After than into my iMac, but nothing happened.. so that means its not stuck in DFU mode.

    FIX: just hold [home] + [power] for around 10 seconds when you let go the Apple logo will appear and the iDevice boots normally.

    Yes but just because we aren't actively doing something on our devices doesn't mean they are doing something -- push email etc
