    the same thing just happened to my phone last nite i was sitting there on my couch looking at my phone and i realized the home screen would not rotate unless i slid the keyboard out, i feel alot better now that i know its not just me but a bug in everyones droid....i was gonna go back to verizon and have them switch it out, because it did do it when i first got it.....we are not crazy!:)

    It used to orientate. Even when it was locked in would but mine is doing the same thing. My friend from Verizon is looking into it right now.

    Out of curiosity I installed DockRunnner (even though I already have the hard dock), and it crashed my DROID - HARD!

    After uninstalling it and resetting, all's smooth sailing once again.

    I think its funny that it used to work for everyone and now all of a sudden it just suddenly stopped working for everyone.

    My TMobile G1 never did this automatically and AFAIK its not designed to auto-rotate the home screen in Android 2.0 either...

    The Droid did rotate when it was first launched, but there was some sort of update sent out to our phones that changed this.
