In this option:
- THe screen is on 100% of the time = battery drain
- The screein is on = touch activated = clumsy fingers in pocket may call/do something
In the bitter end: this solution is not an option.
The best option, so far, is to let ipod on, with no volume, and lock the phone. ( 24 hs standby) So far, it is the only option I got to leave my iphone operational.:o

Mine is lasting so far, 22 to 24 hrs standby with Ipod on... My signal strength is very high (all bars up), maybe this is the difference...

omg! and i thought i was alone:eek: ...same with you guys i have the same problem. but be happy coz mine is worse..whenever i go to sleep mode the phone just freezes and hangs..so i can never put it to sleep which drains the battery very very fast =(
i sw unlocked..ive done 3 phones with only this having the autolock problem.
i dont think it was an unlock problem...fresh from virgin+ restore(unactivated) i tried to trigger sleep by pressing power button..and the same thing it froze after afew seconds of "sleeping"
i wish i could just have the phone exchanged but i am overseas =(
ive tried everything like playing songs then letting it sleep. or opening an app and triggering sleep...same same same! freezes...and have to home+power (reboot).
Wow...that's even worse!
Well, all the posted 'solutions' are nothing I can live with!
All...let's cross our fingers for ecaramaschis hardware solution. I think he will try it today or tomorrow!
I have the same problem.
However I'm sometimes getting calls through on sleep mode, and not at other times. I'm in the UK, so no chance of returning phone. We brought 2 phones over - one for me and one for a friend. Unlocked both in the same way. His seems to be working fine.
EDIT: Thanks for the 'iPod-playing' workaround. Seems to be working for me, although not ideal.
what are your guys's serial number out of the iphone box and what method did you guys use for unlock?
i really think that it's more of a hw problem. i have tried the ipod playing background/contacts/whatever it still freezes when 'waken up'
i dont think sw hack caused it.:o
