Just started having a small issue with the power button on my Motorola Droid this morning.
Whenever I get a new email or txt msg, I usually read it quickly and then hit the power button to lock the phone and turn the screen back off. Now when I hit the power button, nothing happens. The screen stays lit up until it times out. If I hold the power button, I still get the normal Silent / Airplane / Power menu.
If I wait until the phone times out and locks itself, tapping the power button lights it up and shows the lock screen as usual. At that point, tapping the power button again WILL turn the screen off. Only when the phone is unlocked does the power button stop locking/turning the screen off.
Any ideas? Is this a setting somewhere? Thanks for your help.
