    I had been using a paid version of PowerAmp. Never had this problem before Gingerbread. However, it seems at least once during every workout session (which is when I listen to music on my DX), the DX will power off. I have to hold down the power button for a while before it will even turn back on. I uninstalled PowerAmp completely, and tried using the stock player. Same issue.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I have had the same problem since Gingerbread. I've tried factory reset, called vzw, got a few refurbs and they all do the same thing. I'm hoping the new fix actually fixes it!

    No... the phone is not physically hot.

    Is there actually a new fix coming?

    Supposedly, MOTO is working on Gingerbread 4.5.602. I haven't heard anything concrete on that though.

    I would try a data wipe

    I found that if the music player is on the screen when the display goes off...."poof". I start the music, set to randomize, +minimize it+ then turn off the display. No more problems. M.

    Since GB, mine shuts off at any random time. Music, no music, idle or working. It doesn't matter.

    Same here. Is why I'm going to samsung droid charge. GB for DX sucks. Guna have to sell the DX. Which is a real bummer cuz it's in tip top condition with nice cases and cool phone protectors. So long DX! =(

    Same problem here... I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with this device.

    Time to root boys. I have never had that issue on all the rooted GB leaks or any custom ROM.
