Phone permanently sleeping

OK guys. I've read how fast these things get fixed but I'm holding my breath a bit. This is my first real problem that hasn't been solved in a weeks time so its time to ask questions.

Ok. If I turn on or let my phone turn on with a text message, I'll go to respond. If I push my button at the top to put my phone into sleep before it sends the message (I'm guessing), I can get it to permanently sleep.

The green led flashes like normal but the screen is dead. Its not that the backlight is off, the screen is OFF. I cannot bring it back without a reset.

The only reason why this is a problem priority now is that a few phones Ive upgraded are experiencing the same problem. I have no idea if it is related to the text messaging but that's how I can reproduce it easily enough.

Cheers to 6.1 and the audiomanager/task manager fixes that I've already benefited from!

Re: Phone permanently sleeping

I had this issue when I included the battery tweaks from the kitchen. If the phone turned itself off and stayed off for a short period of time (10-15 minutes) it wouldn't turn back on without a reset. I got rid of the battery tweaks and the problem stopped.

Re: Phone permanently sleeping

You sure this isnt the BSoD (Black Screen of Death) that we used to see a lot of? Do you have a card locked in the slot? If so, when the phone is sleeping and the screen wont turn on, try popping the card out and see if the phone will wake then.

Re: Phone permanently sleeping

Ok.. tried popping out the sd card. Didn't change anything.

Will try removing battery tweaks and report back once I've gotten back home. (funny how you knew I had that -- makes me think that it is the culprit.)

I will be playing with the sd-card removal some more throughout my texts today - it is the only sure-fire way to get this thing to do the BSOD... (heh)

Re: Phone permanently sleeping

After playing around some more, I've found this out. First, my EVDO stays on permanently once activated as described here:
Werid problem with 6.1

and so I've set some settings around and ended up turning my evdo on ALWAYS using ppchacks. Now if I connect to the internet, I can let my device timeout while I'm connected to EVDO (white arrows) and once it times out, it enters the famous Permanent Sleep pattern I've been describing.

That's strange. I flashed 6.1 w/o the "battery tweaks" (I think we are talking about the ones here: Battery tweaks ) and applied these reg edits manually.

The only reason why I am posting here is because with 6.0, if I was on an unusually long phone call (lasting longer than the battery power off time setting) sometimes I could not get the display back w/o a soft reset. The green phone LED was still blinking, but there was no way to interact with the device.

Has not happened with 6.1. Makes me thing its something else

Re: Phone permanently sleeping

This has problem occurred to my 6700 ever since upgrading to 6.1. I did not include battery tweaks. Also, I receive no notifications when the phone is in SLEEP.

Crazy thing is that the phone will wake up once every ten times. Seems to be a random occurrence. I have done absolutely no reg edits.

I've searched the several forums and there seems to be no solution.

Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Re: Phone permanently sleeping

I changed my dialer from the new touch dialer to the old touch dialer too. I forgot to reference that from my other post that had to do with internet arrow displays always being on. (dated 3/8 was the "bad" dialer)

Maybe that is the culprit.

Sorry for the "mis"-information (or lack of complete information)
