Black screen on slide

My phone's screen is turning black, often, when I slide in or out the keyboard.

I don't mind it turning black between portrait to landscape, and its never stuck black in portrait. But sometimes I will slide it all the way till it locks with the keyboard it doesn't light up. It will stay black until I unslide it a bit.

This feels like a hardware problem. I bought the phone from BestBuy, and it went with their insurance instead of Verizon's, so I plan to take the phone to best buy and see if I can get it replaced.

I don't have 2.0.1 yet, so I figured I'd wait for the firmware update just in case this is a known bug they will somehow fix with software. But it really feels like a hardware problem.
