    Waking up your Storm

    When your Storm is laying idle on the table and you get a text or email and the LED starts flashing, what button do you push to light the screen up?
    I seem to always push the red power button and lately it doesn't light the screen up. I have to push the back button. Don't know if this is V7 related or
    not.

    Hello Striker..
    Throughout any of the OS's I have been able to press my screen and it will ramp up. I did not get in the habit of using the function keys. Secondly, I've only utilized 1 hybrid and that was BBCv6. I was able to press my screen as well to activate it.

    That' my rundown...

    Striker I started having this issue a couple of weeks ago and it kept getting worse and worse. It got to the point of having to hold down the hard keys for up to 5 seconds for my storm to turn on. Needless to say I just got my replacement.

    Good point. I probably should get into habit of doing that, too. Thanks,

    i usually press the back button, out of habit. sometimes i press the screen, but if you don't hit it squarely it might not register, which i guess is why i use the hard key.
    i would turn it all in for late nights and impossible dreams.

    I don't know why but I typically just throw mine across the room. That seems to do the trick.
