    The useful part of this message (fixed in future update) you provided earlier. The rest of your message is redundant, and only makes you appear supercilious. "Chill" might be advice to give yourself.

I'm sceptical about reports that some people don't have this problem.

    If you have seen someone go through the steps to go into sleep mode (hold power button down a few seconds for menu, select sleep from menu), and then recover without problems, please report this. Thanks.

    ...who can do this without the phone getting totally powered down...maybe they haven't updated their software?

    You are right, I can work around this issue without powering down that way, but I'm from the "old school" thinking-when you buy something new, it should just work and work correctly. I can wait for updates that will fix issues, but I want reassurance that they are coming, and hopefully soon.

    So Spider, how did you know this was going to be in the next update? How soon before the update is available in your estimation? Do you know if they are including software updates for Handsfreelink as well, because that is another issue. My car's Bluetooth drops in and out of calls and won't recognize my phone book...

    It is true that the problem doesn't happen to everyone. I have the issue and my wife doesnt (same phone, same version, same purchase date).

    I have found a slight "workaround" for it.

    When my phone is in sleep mode, the only way I can get it back on without removing the battery is to plug it into a wall outlet...for some reason that seems to bring it back to life.

    I have the system update and this just happened to me

    Any suggestions/Similar cases of this?
    I've had my Droid3 since mid-August and used the manually selected sleep mode a few times - no problem.

    Then I got the system update last Friday September 30, and today when I used manual sleep mode, the phone wouldn't wake up. I had to remove the battery to get it working again. A last-ditch move on my part since I had previously not heard of nor experienced the problem.

    My (sample of one) experience is that this problem was introduced on my phone by the system update! (Version 5.6.890.XT862.Verizon.en.US)
