Call Verizon's 1-800 number. They are said to be more competent than the in-store reps.
This is interesting. I have had my D2 since Sept. I have had a black screen a few times. I do not remember the circumstance or what I did to resolve the problem,

I have had these blank screen/reboot issues on my D2 as well. I'm usually very concious about exciting apps and removing foreground processes. It has ben happening on stock rom and still happens after I flashed to squidly rom. I use a program called watchdog lite to monitor the cpu usage, also a root program that changed the minfree value of the android system to kill apps more effectively when memory is needed.i will be calling verizon in the next few days to are about a replacement phone
Dagnabbit. I just got my global, and it's doing this...
I have had my D2 since august and it has always had problems with the black sleep screen. I am constantly erasing apps just because I do not use them and yet it continues to get worse. Especially since I started reading books on my phone. Sometimes I have to take the battery out just to get it to start up again.

Just keep thinking Gingerbread, Gingerbread.
Somebody better call a technological shaman and perform a mass exorcism on all these possessed DX/D2/D2G phones!!! Haha just kidding.
But anyways, FoxKat provided some good details, which hold water, to some of your issues. Use the back arrow key, or, while still on an application press the Menu button and click exit or whatever is provided. But mostly back arrow key is good. I wouldn't advise using ATK since there are many cons than pros about these.
Be sure to read comments about the next app you download. Comments, left by past and present customers (about the app you are about to download), are just as critical as anything else and provide details on what these customers experienced with that app(s). Also check for comments by customers that even leave a make and/or model of their phone with their comment since a problem they experienced could be the same exact make and model phone you have. Also, don't forget to read the Dev's details and instructions! Sometimes they leave details saying "***FOR DX ONLY!!!***" and you have a D1... don't try it or risk it.
Turning off your phone every now and then is also good. I usually turn my off at night when I sleep. Every 1, 2, max 3 days is essential to it.
Also, pressing Menu (at the home launcher) and go to Applications, Manage Applications, and click on the Running tab. You will see all the apps running on there so find some apps on there that are deemed unnecessary to be running and FC it. This is the safest procedure to use rather than Memory Boost, any ATK apps, or any other apps associated. If you wish to be able to watch apps running then Watchdog Lite is a good free app that allows you to monitor running apps and will notify you when a suspicious app is suddenly going crazy or doesn't seem to be acting compliant with you or the phone and will ask, on your authority, to terminate it, whitelist it, or ignore it.
I've had the phone reboot on me twice. Had someone call me but the screen wouldn't come on twice, and other similar issues I've had with the D2 A955 since September. Last bizzare activity I had was back in early December when I really got into scrutinizing apps, sudden memory trigger loss, app conflicts, apps still running without acknowledging it and such.
Treat it like a computer/laptop. Make sure things are running smoothly and make sure you're not using excessive apps and leaving them running in the background.
