I’ve had CM7 alpha 2 and alpha 3 on my HP Touchpad (32GB just so you know) and recently I've started experiencing a problem where I lock my touchpad using the button on the top and when I unlock it the next time I cannot control the screen at all. The screen rotates with the accelerometer depending how I am holding it but I cannot open anything or change the screen I am looking at. The main problem with this is that once it happens I can do nothing on the touchpad until the battery dies and I restart it (as the restart option of android involves holding down the power button and the pressing the "power off" on the screen).

Has anyone else experience any issues like this and does anyone know of a way to turn off the touchpad without waiting till it dies?

Battery is currently at 72% and in stand-by mode means I won’t be able to use it for another couples of days.

Any help appreciated.

Jimmy

I'm completely new to all of this, but I had a similar issue the other day where I stupidly locked myself into my own lockscreen and had to do a force restart.  I held down the power button with the home/center button for about 5 seconds and that took me back to the boot screen with the option to dual boot, shutdown, etc etc

I had the same thing happen!  I pulled it out of my backpack and tried to start it up to check email.  Battery was at 72%... coicidence??  But the screen wouldn't respond to anything.  I tried rebooting too, but it wouldn't do it because you need to touch the screen.  Held down the power at the top, and the button on the bottom for long enough and reset it that way.  That's the only way I could get the screen to respond again.

Thanks both, didnt know you could reboot that way in android.

Same problem, was going to start a thread about it when I saw yours. It's absolutely the top button that precipitates this, when I just let the screen time out on its own I can go days without an issue but turning off the screen via the top button brings it on virtually instantly.

Anyone up for getting some of the "turn screen off" apps designed for phones whose power button wears out easy and seeing if they cause it too?

Since the Alpha 3.5 all three of my TP's have had this issue, scared me the first time as I lock my screen, it makes it even harder to reboot, but just keep holding down the two buttons and it will reboot, just takes longer.

Yeah, dude, all you needed to do was hold HOME+POWER for a bit until it rebooted and you'd've been fine...

I did all that. I just received my touchpad and it stopped working after 20 mins of playing with it then I let it sit for an hour or two,  and turned it on again it worked! Now, since I updated my webOS 3.0.4 it stopped working.... So at the moment i'm WebOS doctoring it now hopefully it works.

I just had the same thing happen to me. The screen was unresponsive after waking my tablet up. Thanks for the reboot tip and it fixed the problem.
The port is still in alpha so i'm not concerned or surprised that this happened.

I also just wanted to say you guys/gals aren't alone... This problem happened every once in awhile on the previous beta, but since I installed 3.5 its starting to happen once+ a day this last week.

I have experienced an issue where the touchscreen is not responsive, but I have always been able to fix it by tapping the power button (screen goes dark) and then tapping it again to wake it up.

As has already been said: This is a software issue. Force-rebooting it will fix it.

It's not a software issue because I have done a force-reboot  and still it doesn't fix the problem.

Anyhow, I just received my TP from HP and they replaced it. According to the note they left in there, it said that the old TP wasn't recoverable.
