Both me and my GF, have had our GT-N7000 galaxy notes for about 3 weeks now.

We've both had them turn off twice. I'm glad I found this thread! Some useful suggestions in here.

What should I be setting the WI-FI policy to?

'when screen turns off.'

or 'never.' ??

you guys should contact samsung to complain about this issue as I did, the more you get in touch with them quicker they will realize that is a firmware problem and resolve it asap

As you may noticed, I once experienced this issue and posted for help in this thread. I addressed the issue by changing to different ROMs together with kernel.

And just now I also saw this post by user schaggo (thanks!), here's the quote:

This is probably related to minor changes of the hardware in newer Notes. It seems kernels basing on .35.7 do not properly work on those Notes, source .35.14 seems does. The device does work, its just a display problem. Try turning the device on and off a couple times, it'll eventually come back.

The symptoms though, is limited to this: (by agravier) (Thanks!)

Some recent N7000 with non directly rootable ROMS have problems after downgrading to KJ1 and upgrading to some more recent ROM: once locked, the phone is not unlockable, white pixels are displayed instead of the lock screen.

So if you have exact same symptoms on ur phone, try flashing a different kernel!

GL!

I just had my N7000 go into a 'sleep of death'. This is the third time in a month. basically, it's happened once a week.

I have the WIFI sleep policy set to 'never when plugged in' at the moment, it has the added bonus of saving even more battery power, but has NOT resolved the issue.

I've created a file to keep track of the issue: how often it happens (and when) and also the settings i've changed to attempt to resolve it.

Today, under the display settings, I changed my screen mode from MOVIE to STANDARD. I also turned off the 'auto adjust screen power'.

I've kept my WIFI sleep mode settings the same.

I wonder if this is just certain batches made in China?

I've got a white g note GT-N7000 that is marked on the box as being made in China. Same with my GF's note.

What about everyone else? If you are having the 'SOD' issue, where was your device manufactured?

Hello! I have a problem with SOD, the phone was manufactured in Korea 10.2012 initially came with firmware KJ4 (DBT), to date, LB1 (DBT), I've tried a bunch of non-original firmware with the execution of all instructions to wipe, the same result. Are there programs or fixing the cause of an application for which the system freezes? Sorry for my bad english I'm from Russia.

Can you let us know if they find anything or are able to resolve it?

Actually they sent it back last Thursday saying it was fixed, just on the very first attempt it died again so I got back to them and they told me they found a problem with the power converter for the led camera (nothing was happening with it with me) and they replaced the power module.

The fault about the phone going into sleep of death was not looked into so I had to call them again, book the service again and set it back Friday. They are a bit stupid because I clearly stated the problem very well and they looked for something else to be fixed that was not even broken.

Is is like you got to a place asking for a donkey and end up with an ash tray and they think it is right...

Should get it back this week and I let you guys know what was found this time. I hope they don't try to fix something else that is not broken...
