holding down the power button has this exact effect.

I believe your power button might be permanently stuck 'in' - if it doesn't feel this way, try slipping a pin (only a tiny way and while the phone is OFF and UNPLUGGED from any socket) into the gap between the power button and the phone casing. it's a small gap but give it a little wiggle. with any luck it will come unstuck.

good luck !

Beginning to see a pattern here folks......I've commented on two other threads about exactly this problem......it's definitely a faulty power button. Officially the only way to sort it is to get the entire main board replaced.....if you have the standard 2 year warranty....use it.....
The phone won't boot normally, so there's no way Samsung can tell what OS you're running and try to claim 'warranty void' so just go for it....

This might be my S2, or it might be my W...but it's definitely CM

Just posting here to report about my phone with a very similar issue.
Like what the others have said in this thread, its the power button. I just came from the repair shop and they replace mine with a new power button. The phone works perfectly now.
