    Anyone facing problems with their Lumia 920 or wp8 where, when you press the physical lock key and it won't respond?

    This happened to me many times. The only thing I can do is restart my phone.

    Is there any fix to this?

    I'm not facing any big problem with the button though. Although sometimes I need to press twice to wake the screen but I thought it was just a typical slow response from the button.

    I have faced this problem just once till now, but the phone woke up on the second press. My guess is that I just didn't press the button properly the first time.
