    There have been times throughout the day when i'm working on my Storm (9530) and the screen will just randomly turn off. I've tried pressing the buttons, clicking the screen and locking the device while this occurs and I haven't gotten any response from it. This black screen never lasts more than a minute but it has become somewhat of an inconvenience. I was just wondering if there is any fix for this?

    This could be part of your problem, there are many known software issues with that software. Read these forums and if you are comfortable you may want to try and do an OS upgrade!

    is it possible that there is a fault with the actual hardware?

    It is very possible, check by upgrading your OS and seeing if the issue is still there

    This happened to me frequently in the early days (OS .65/.76) but as I kept installing beta OS's it has slowly diminished. Currently running .148 and I can't remember the last time I had a random reboot.

    agreed, i have had .109 for 3 months or so, and I have yet to have one since I loaded it.
