Home Button Not Responsive and taking random picture of screen?
so i have noticed a little bit with the new ios5 software my iphone4 can do some random glitchy things sometimes. this morning i went to press the home button to get the screen back on and i had to press it a couple times and then all of a sudden it snaps a random picture of the screen and i didn't hold the top button and the home button at the same time. it just randomly went off. any ideas?

I was thinking possibly your case has moved into a position where the sleep/ wake button on top is getting engaged and then when you hit the home button it engages the screen shot (if you didn't know to take a screen shot on the iPhone you hit the sleep/ wake button and the home button)
Maybe phone damaged or something like that. Hopefully someone on here other than me will come across this and have a better answer for you.
I'd also like to know myself in case I hear of this happening to someone else.

I generally restart my phone any time I start seeing wierd issues like this. Can't know for usre if it will fix the problem. But these devices do so much... they have becomeso reliable that I forget to restart mine. But a good reboot always helps refresh it after a few days.

Try a reset. Close all apps then - Hold down the HOME, bottom button, and the SLEEP, top button, for about 10 seconds until the Apple icon appears, then release buttons. Allow it to reboot, it may take a few minutes, don't panic like I did, wait for it to reboot. Cures many weird problems on iOS devices.
