I just got my Droid 3 on christmas and haven't noticed any huge problems with this specific device. I've been a loyal Moto smartphone user since the original motodroid, moto devour, Droid 2 and now happy to have the D3. So needless to say, I'm rather savvy with the hardware and software Motorola has been pushing on their major handsets.
One feature I did notice come into the picture on my Droid2, was the extra 'sleep mode' in the core phone settings. This feature was released on the 2.3.4 Gingerbread update my D2 received shortly before getting my hands on this Droid3. The feature worked fine on my old device and would act to make the phone seem off but a hold to the power/lock key would skip the phone launch and give you instant access. Now this feature carried over to the D3 but doesn't seem so flawless. When I send the D3 into sleep it will fall into more of a coma state rather then a sleep, as the device will not come out of sleep. It just remains asleep and unresponsive forcing me to pull the batt cover and execute the phone.
So the point of this story is to find out if this is an all out D3 flaw, or my device has a personal problem. Also I haven't been able to find a soft reset for the droid 3 and could use a tip if anyone knows if this is still available. (The soft reset for MotoDroid and D2 was Shift-Alt-Del)
