    Heard of this happening to my friend's iOS 5 device. Try a soft reset before doing a restore. (Hold the home button and lock button until you see the Apple logo on the screen)

    I have a similar issue .
    My auto-lock is a hit or miss.
    I look at my iPhone 4S after a while and sometimes it's still on.

    Anyone else.

    Same thing happens to me. Also I cannot play music/watch videos without headphones. Alarms work without headphones but there is no volume options for media without headphones.

    The same exact thing has happened to my phone randomly the music won't play without headphones, and I can't watch videos with sound. Also my phone won't turn off and stay off either. Did you get it fixed or know what the problem is?

    I have that problem also. Even sometimes I am sure I hit the sleep button I will look at it and it's still on. Mine's a 5 though.

    Are you just trying to turn off the phone or doing a soft reset.. Because I know that if u do a soft reset and you don't let go on time the phone will turn right back on
