    I've had my Lumia 521 for a few weeks, and over that time I've had 3 instances when I'm in an app, hit the power button to put the phone in sleep mode, and then the phone will not wake from sleep.

    2 instances were when I was using Nokia Here, and 1 was when I was using the camera.

    Do any other WP users experience this problem? Will a hard reset resolve it if you don't have a removable battery like the 521?

    I've only had it happen once after installing an app. A soft reset did the trick for me.
