I'll be using my Samsung Focus and all of a sudden, I'll see "slide down to power off" I slide up (of course) but the phone shuts off a few seconds later. When I try to turn it back on, the white SAMSUNG shows up for a few seconds then shuts back off then back on. It takes a few tries for me to actually get the phone on and working, but it always shuts down eventually. If anyone has experienced this problem and fixed it please let me know! I'm leaving for college very soon and need to get this fixed. Thanks!!!

We need more details about the phone:
HW Revision (1.3/1/4)
ROM: stock/custom
OS version

What you're describing is symptom of power button being continuously pressed. You might need to clean it or change it.

I have the latest update on the phone and it is stock. How would I go about cleaning the power button or changing it?

I don't know of any specific video for repairing the power button, unfortunately.
However, here is a thread on repairing the screen, which gives you an idea how to open the phone. Keep in mind that if you do open it, you lose your warranty so if you want to keep it, don't open it.
Here and here are other 2 videos on opening the Focus, hope this helps.

Id like to report that getting a new battery has completely resolved this problem, even at low charges.
