    I don't know what I did!

    I was playing with SpareParts, and I tried installing an alternate version of spare parts so that I could get the "keep home launcher in memory" option. For some reason, now when I hit the power button, my screen doesn't turn off.

    I tried putting the old SpareParts back again, and I tried rebooting.

    It's an option in Spare Parts.

    "End Button Behavior"

    Choose "Go to sleep"

    Ahh, that was it. Thanks! I could have sworn I tried changing that back, but I guess I didn't change it after I put the original copy of SpareParts back and rebooted.

    For some reason, the "Home, then sleep" option for that button doesn't work.

    Me Too!

    I'm so glad I looked here! That fixed my problem. I'll confirm that the "Home then sleep" option doesn't work.

    boy.. that setting couldn't be any more ambiguous. Why does spare parts reference the "red" end button? I changed that setting a few days ago because I thought it was the End Button from within a call (thinking that then my phone would stop locking after a call).

    Anyhow -- I have reflashed my phone about 5 times (including a factory reset) trying to figure out why my damn phone wouldn't go to sleep. Uninstalled all the apps I had installed recently and the thing still did it.

    Anyhow, thanks for the fix!
