Power button is unreliable on Jolla C

On my Jolla C the power button seems to be unreliable. Every 10th times or so when I press the power button to wake the device up nothing happens. Possibly this is a hardware issue: if I press the button too gently it does not recognise the event.

Not sure if it's the same issue, but my Jolla1 also doesn't wake up or go to sleep by pressing the power button sometimes.

I never paid much attention to it, but now that you mention it, I seem to run into the same trouble sometimes. I often use the double-pushing-the-powerswitch to return to the last open app and it sometimes seems to "forget" the first push on my Jolla C.

Heh, it seems that in my Nexus5/SFOS the power button is way too sensitive as it has happened twice that the device has switcched itself off in mu pocket when I am bending :)

I think just go to a proper mobile phone repair shop where they do board level repair, and they will replace the problematic button.

I know this is not a widespread device, but a good technician can find some footprint compatible pushbutton easily I think.

Jolla sailor spiiroin posted a software trick for this kind of hardware failure.
