    The sensor placement makes good sense. It is supposed to sense when it is close to something (your face) & turn off the screen to prevent accidential key presses. The problem is that it often senses something is there when there isn't, and doesn't turn the screen on. But, my replacement droid works properly... my old one didn't.

    Also, what does "pulling the battery" entail? How will this affect the Droid? Do I lose all my settings, do I have to reinstall everything?
    You will not lose anything. It's basically like shutting your computer down completely then starting it back up.

    Your device will be fine.
    Even more than that, you may not even lose things that were running in the background at the time. My screen went black on Friday (not making a call) and had the same thing like yours. I pulled the battery and it was fine. I had been running Carrr Matey and Car Locator (apps that keep track of where your car is parked) and both were unaffected by the battery pull.

    thank you.
    If I kill running apps I'll use the native application to shut down things. Otherwise I just let the device be.
    What is the "native" app to shut things down?

    thanks again.
    go into settings/applications/manage applications/ hit menu key/filter/choose running

    That will show you a list of apps running on the device. Touch whatever you want to shut down and choose force stop.

    How do I found out the batch number of my phone? Mine has been doing the same thing and I've been experiencing poor call quality. Thinking about exchanging...anyone know the number of the defective batch?

    Oh, OK

    {Cereal-killer's busy tonight}
    Now that we're acquainted, do you know how to find the batch number?

    Black Screen

    My phone has been doing that too. And the power button or pulling the keyboard out doesn't do anything but bring up the black screen again. I had to pull out the batter and put it right back in. It's annoying. I've has my phone about 3 weeks and I've had to do that a handful of times. I really hope there is a fix for it.
