    I do know someone...


    ...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

    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)

    Yes, the update screwed up sleep mode for some reason...so now we get to wait for another update to fix this update. :)

    My daughter and I both have the same problem! I got mine to turn back on only once. Other times we have to remove battery. And when we do turn back on its in airplane mode.

    I have an issue that is close to that, my phone will randomly freeze and I have to do a battery pull to reset it. sometimes it will do it after it goes to sleep it wont wake up or just randomly while it is on. please help this is my second D3 and it is extremely frustrating.
