This could be a number of things.

Have you done a battery pull to reset the phone?

Are you running an app from the market when it happens?

Have you tried doing a factory reset?

Have you enabled In Pocket Detection?

When I first got my Droid 2 Global, I went through and turned options on that sounded like they would be useful to me. Unfortunately I checked the In Pocket Detection option and my screen would just randomly turn off. My heart sunk every time it would do it because I honestly thought there was a serious flaw with my phone. Once I realized and disabled the option - problem solved!

I hope this is a simple solution for you. <Settings <Display <In Pocket Detection

Can you help me? I have the Droid Global 2 and I also turned on the In Pocket Detection. I have searched all over the place to relocate it so that I can turn it off, but it is no where to be found. Can you help me locate it?

No longer an option
by mskimmyd / December 14, 2011 7:19 PM PST

I'm experiencing this issue as well. When I first got the phone, I enabled in pocket detection. Now, however, the option is no longer available in Settings>Display. I've been searching online & others are having this issue as well, but no one seems to have found a solution. If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
