    Ok so my power button physically "works" fine, but it's starting to aggravate me. About 90% of the time when my screen is off, and I press the power button to bring it to the unlock screen, the screen will come on just for a split second, then back off, forcing me to hit the power button again. It doesn't always do this, but does it more than not. And it's very aggravating becuase, out of habit, I'll be already trying to scroll the screen to unlock and it's already turned itself back off. If not that, I'll try to anticipate it and go ahead an hit the button twice, and naturally it doesn't mess up when i do this and therefore all I have done is turned my screen on and then back off. Anybody else have this issue and find a cause for it?

    No root by the way or anything out of the ordinary. The physical "press" of the button seems to be fine. It's got me stumped.

    I thought that too, I have an Otterbox Defender. The button seems to press fine though, and not "double-press." I'll try it for awhile with the cover off and see if it persists.

    Does the same thing for me but in reverse, I have a Ottorbox Commuter case on. When I am going to turn the screen off by pressing the power button it will flash off then back on and I have to press again.

    I think many users experience this, the power button is loose and can render double presses at times (I think).

    Mine is also suffering the same minor disturbance. It catches me off-guard often but I just chock it up to fate and press again. It also doesn't happen every time and for the life of me I can't see any kind of pattern. I had contemplated the same possibility as Sydman but my button is only 3 months old so I think it may be more OS related than mechanical.

    I think my case causes my issue (button is recessed into the case a bit) , but yes it happens to me 75% of the time... :(

    While it is a minor annoyance, it it still seems to be a much more universal occurrence than anyone thought. I would be concerned that down the road as these phones age, the problem possibly could get worse or may even lead to other problems. This is definitely something Moto should be aware of and I bet they are not...

    Possibly ICS could fix this (if it is a software issue)? :)

    I'm thinking it may be OS related also as my phone is only 3 months old too. While yes it is only a minor problem it does tend to get aggravating. And it seems to also be more widespread than I thought. Just hoping it doesn't lead to bigger problems in the future.

    Power button no longer works

    My phone died and had the white light which i found out was probably a battery issue. I was able to get it to charge with a car charger and eventually was able to power on my phone. Everything seems to work fine except now the power button does not work in any capacity. I have tried the soft reboot by pressing the power button and the volume control and though it rebooted i still have the same problem. I even tried to do a factory reset and it still does not work. Now the only way to wake up my phone and use it is to answer an incoming call. Does anyone have any other ideas on what to do or do i need to just take it to a repair shop? Thanks for any help you can give

    I am familiar with desktop PCs corrupting the boot record or operating system of the computer due to low voltages as a result of a failing power supply. It's possible that your phone's OS is corrupted due to the previously deep discharged battery, which would explain why a factory reset didn't fix your issue with the power button.

    You might benefit from re-flashing the OS using http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=216562
    Droid RAZR Utility 1.8. Then try the power button and report back.
