    It seems every day there is a new, weird issue with my droid. Maybe Im just paranoid, but they are things that I dont think should be happening.

    I dont know if its coincidence, but I downloaded the strobe light app from the store, used it, and then my brightness was all the way up when I closed it. Now, when I press the lock button then again to unlock, the screen is black for a couple seconds before showing the unlock screen...I uninstalled the app and restarted the phone...same issue.

    I cant remember if it has ever done this before or if it was only after the app.
    Is this normal? Is it something I should fix?

    I would really appreciate any help to put my mind at ease. thanks!

    When you say rebooted, did you do a battery pull? Try that if the answer is no.

    Since updating to Froyo seems my x has been getting more glitches every day. I don't think it is inherently a serious problem, but something that could probably be rectified with a fresh slate as a battery pull solves the problems for a time.

    Will probably do a factory reset this weekend when I have more time to deal with reinstalling and setup.

    Something to think about ...
