Question [Q] Sometimes, HTC M8 turns off itself for a while

I have my phone few days ago, it's EU edition. The phone has a really annoying problem, sometimes it turns itself off for a while, during that time, I can't do anything to turn it on again. It takes around 3 to 5 minutes before pressing the power button can help. Does anyone have this problem also? I don't know should I exchange for a new one or return it....
P/S: My friend also has one and it also has same problem.. and that was his exchanged device...

Omg I've been experiencing that quite often recently!
It's freaking annoying and I can't do anything about it.
Happened once when I was using Google keep and taking a photo when a whatsapp text came in and several other random times.
I'm on Asian stock unrooted

Use Volume up + power to force a reboot

On topic though, it shouldn't be doing that at all

Default Software number

I have software number 1.54, I updated the phone right after I unboxed it, should it because of this update?
