    Check and see if the "in pocket detection" is on. My phone did this too and I unchecked that in the settings/display menu and it quit.

    I'll second disabling "in pocket detection", my droid screen would shut off any time my hand got close to the sensor near earpiece speaker.

    I also had one other experience to share, on the remote possibility it may apply... I installed Go Locker as a replacement for the stock screen locking app. I love the app, however after a reboot, it appears as though both screen lockers are running, with Go Locker responding to touch but the stock locker ignoring it. The result is my screen will time out, go dark and/or display the stock screen locker. Killing Go Locker task once seems to work around the problem.

    Hope you find a solution to this problem.

    Try Screebl app!!!

    I have found this app very handy, it lets you set parameters as to when to keep the screen on no matter what. You can adjust angle, time and other parameters.

    I had the exact same problem with my DROID 2. I had downloaded a P2P mp3 app off if the market. By simply deleting the app the problem went away. I forget what the app was called but the icon was of a smiley face with devil horns..
