I'm noticing that since the latest update I sometimes find that the screen refuses to "light up" - if I press the volume key I can hear the sound but the screen refuses to display anything. However if I connect the usb cable it will display the power connection image plus the % charged - but it won't display anything else. I've had to reboot it to get it back. Anyone else getting this "lock up"?

I experience something similar... sometimes when I try to wake up the phone (with double tap or power button) the screen goes on but only black, no images appears; if I swipe up from the bottom edge (notifications gesture) the notifications screen appears; after that I can repeat the gesture and the home screen will appear. I'm not sure it's the same issue, but is a lot similar.

I've noticed this too! It's quite scary.

I also had that yesterday. and some seconds later an alarm that i've set in the clock started - that also "unlocked" the screen. But it's rather complicated to set up alarms due if you want to have a look at your Jolla in the future :). Thanks for the swipe - didn't try that, but will check if it occours again....
