    I've had my iPhone 4 for 2 months now, and I love it.
    I've had zero issues, until only a few hours ago, when my Sleep/Wake button would randomly press itself. :confused: Sometimes every 5 mins or so, other times with a longer gap.
    I could be watching a video browsing or whatever, and I'd get the lock sound, along with the screen turning off. Then I'd get the 'slide to power off' option.
    A press of the cancel button ends it, only for the same thing to happen again a few minutes later.
    I'm restoring as I type this on my iPad, to see if that'll fix it, because I've never dropped my phone, and always take care of it.
    If it persists, I'll take it to the Regent Street Apple Store to get a replacement, where the issue will no doubt never happen in there, making me look like an idiot. :(

    Anyone else had this problem?

    Same Problem.

    My iPod locks itself, unlocks itself, brings up the "slide to turn off thing" and even turns itself on sometimes... but usually turns itself back off somehow before the iPod loads and the apple logo leaves... All I was doing to cause this was locking and unlocking my iPod with normal presses... complete crap that it should do this...

    Colorado Springs USA for now
    First guy responded almost 2 years after OP and you took almost a year to respond to him.... I would bet they fixed the issue by now.
