Is anyone having an issue when sliding to keyboard. If my screen is already unlocked normally, then I slide to a keyboard, my phone will freeze until I slide it back to normal.

Or if I slide it to keyboard to unlock the phone, the screen doesn't light up at all, or takes a good 15 secs. Also sometimes it freaks out and gets distorted. Its hard to describe that issue.

I am on the latest CM7 7.0.2 stable mod, and had no issues on 7.0 until I updated. If you have solutions to this problem would be greatly appreciated.

I am having the exact same problem and still have had no one to find a solution. :(

I think it's best to show a video. Maybe I'll do it when I get home.

I am on 7.03 and I am having a similar issue, the information bar at the top of my screen will suddenly cut off and go to the bottom and it throws off the whole touch screen. The only way to reset it, is to reboot, which is not easy because of the touch screen being off. I tried to re-flash the ROM and restore my back up, but the problem continues to occur. Any help would be awesome.

I am having the exact same issues, and I have tried flashing several different Roms, doesn't seem to matter. It is a hardware defect that has to do with the slide feature. I can make it happen by sliding my screen, but sometimes if I slide my screen slow and smooth, it doesn't mess up. Also, with mine, if I tap the power button to make it sleep, and then re-open the screen it usually fixes it. Hope this helps.

My screen is black now too.  I had the battery tested, and the phone seems fine.  I just get a black screen, but sounds like the phone is still working.  Tested the screen, and it's not dead, so I'm confused.   Anyone?
