Used this method yesterday and it worked like a simple, easy to use treat.
However since I rooted, sintalled the recovery and superuser utility the power button has stopped reliably responding to each to each press. Can take 5-10 seconds of hitting it before the phone wakes up from lock or locks again.
Have I gone too uninstall happy and amongst the bloatware/Google apps I uninstalled, could there have been seomthing which has caused this? (deleted all the google play's except the app/store one; removed music, browser, EA Games, Email apps...)
Or is this a physical issue?
EDIT: installed CWM 11 and using alternative buttons, just guess I mistreat these phones too much (second time the power button has given out on me, though last time over months, rather than weeks)
