    Are you talking about resetting your phone to factory under: Settings -> About -> Reset your phone, or doing the Volume Down + Power Button + Camera button for 10 seconds?

    nm, I see you meant soft reset. I did a few times on my wife's phone, it would shut off and wouldn't wake with the power button, had to do a soft reset to wake it every time. Ended up exchanging the phone and the new one has been fine since the replacement. I never had to perform a reset while the phone was on but I'm guessing it doesn't matter, either way the issue always came back until we replaced it.

    The only time I've had to the need to soft reset the phone is if it locked up (Mine will lock up sometimes when wireless charging) I have not tried to do it while turned on but it should still work.
