Also I wonder if the on/off switch has got dirt inside that makes it turn on/off by itself.. Any tip on how to clean this button?
Have also installed an app called WakeLock Detector. The "Screen wakelock" doesnt seem to give me any information about why the screen is turned on.. Not many apps that causes screen wakelock..
Any help is much appreciated.
First of all, this is not something that belongs in the General section, but rather in the Q&A Section...
Now to the problem...
No this is not normal, and shouldn't be happening...
It's very unlikely to be a software problem, and since it got wet, that is what probably caused the damage...
The only way to find out what really is happening is to open the phone...
Since it is a uni-body phone this proves to be quite the challenge but it is possible...
If you are Brave enough you can try it yourself, there are some videos on YT on how to do it, and when you open it check for corrosion on the mainborad, and the cable connections...
IF they seem to be OK, try removing the power button, cleaning it and the actual button below the plastic covering...
If that doesn't solve it ether, well than, it's time to bring it to Repair
Be warned... Taking the phone apart by yourself probably voids the warranty.
