Default [Q] screen won't come on

twice now when I press my power button my phone won't turn on. it seems to happen randomly, i pull it out of my pocket and I can't get it to turn on. I end up having to hold the button for like 30 seconds? and then it hard-restarts and everything is back to working fine.

I'm using Cataclysm with Franco.kernel

Qi still beeps when i set my phone on it.

think this is a rom/kernel issue or hardware?

cataclysm + franco gets such amazing battery life

I also had this problem about 3 or 4 times. I was always using stock kitkat and it happened with both stock kernel and franco kernel.

Had the same issue. Called goggle to get RMA. It just arrived today. The sad part is this one is going right back because everytime I try to install a widget, the launcher crashes (stock launcher and 3rd party). I barely have any apps installed at this point. Looking like a faulty device. My original works fine besides the random instance of the screen not coming back on. Thought I was the only one since I started a topic about this a few weeks ago and got no replies. I'm 100% stock and unrooted

This problem started with me after I installed the Franko Kernel.
Spent the whole night reverting to stock.

Not sure what I uninstalled, but my widgets are now working again. Still no idea what causes the screen to randomly not turn back on. Hoping this one doesn't have the same issue
