    Yeah that's happened to me too. Kinda weird, but I never really cared for it.

    Happens quite often...kinda annoying, but all you need to do is lock it then turn it all again, and do it again.

    How do you do this? Just wait until the screen turns off and then slide up?

    Can't reproduce it that way on my 8X and never run into this bug yet. Maybe I just have too slow of a reaction time

    Yep. It's about 5 seconds from the screen dimming to turning off. So far only happened to me once unintentionally, so definitely a harmless bug, but I guess smileyh has worse luck than me :\
