    Ok guys, i dont know what is going on. ever since i downloaded and installed 1.4 my phone keeps randomly asking me if i want to power off. not only that, but the power button is unresponsive! it did this for a few hours in the morning, then it stopped and i thought "oh ok, i guess it wasn't a big deal" but now it's doing it again. I've rebooted my phone several times, and this is just getting frustrating! i can't do anything on my phone without it asking me if i want to power off or whatever! is anyone else having this problem?

    Sounds like the power button is stuck. I'd try blowing it out with
    compressed air. Also try pulling the battery out in case it's just
    a glitch in button state that can't be cleared with a normal reboot.

    i already removed the battery out. i'll try fixing the power button, but it still clicks and feels like it did before i was having this problem? i dont know, it's very annoying...

    id try reinstalling 1.4, with the pounding palms servers took last night, I wouldnt be surprised to see some corrupted installs. Has happened in the past if memory serves me.... Run the 1.4 webos dr on it.

    I had this problem a couple times before and discovered that it had to do with my Hotel (magnetic strip) card key. Just curious if you have your phone next to anything similiar?

    happened to my phone a couple weeks ago. You will be sitting there and it will bring up the power off option or airplane mode, I always hit cancel and than my power button doesn't work. I took my battery out and it worked fine for a day or two and than it happened again. I have found that my button isn't broken it just gets buggy sometime. I don't know what to do and it doesn't bug me enough to get it replaced. But yes it has happened to me to, and I just wait it out now.

    Similar issues here. Power button on occassion will not light up screen. I then hold it down for a few seconds and it will either bring phone to life or cause it to reboot (apparent Luna restart). Having issue maybe 10% of time. Other times no issue. Once I noticed the screen came to life but was frozen for a few seconds before it would respond to touch (and it wasn't cold). Definitely something new going on with waking the phone. I have Sprint Pre.

    I've been having a similar problem. My Pre keeps rebooting at random. I will hit the power button to wake it up and it won't do anything for a few seconds, then it goes to the Palm logo screen and reboots. I've had my Pre since launch day and it has NEVER done this before, but it has done it 4 or 5 times today since updating to 1.4. Maybe I will Doctor it and see if that fixes it.

This is the pittsburgh (monroeville sprint) fyi

    u know what if people are saying this has happened before then lets kill the topic of this thread. overall the webos 1.4 push was a huge success judging by how everyones taking videos and no problems here on my end. i think 1.4 is amazing. the speed and smoothness is apparent when opening apps and the mail is a lot better
