Recently, whenever I travel long distances on my bike, the phone is turning off automatically. I suspect fingerprint is the suspect. In all the occasions in which the phone turned off, the fingerprint reader was covered in sweat.

I bike with mine in a holster case (not directly in contact with my skin/sweat) and it still turns of. To me, the culprit seems to be the power button sticking out, it might get accidentally long-pressed and force sailfish to shutdown.

i.e.: it's a mechanical problem, not something that is easy to fix in software (short of remapping long-press to a different outcome, e.g.: lock device, and keep the volume+power button for force-rebooting an unresponsive crashed OS)

@DrYak Thanks for your reply. I am not sure whether it's a mechanical problem in my case. The phone is 2 weeks old and using a hard case. Never faced this issue in my previous phones. BTW, is there any way to remap the buttons in the current state?

@santhoshmanikandan mechanical as a design flaw because power button sticks out from the case little bit so it's easily get pushed down when phone is in a pocket or so. Xperia X has better design over all, but that's a another story.
