I am hoping that this community can help me as I'm at my wits end with this phone. It has a couple of issues that I find concerning (very poor bluetooth streaming audio sound quality, etc.) but the biggest one that bothers me is that the phone shuts itself down when charging.
Every night I charge my phone, and when I wake up it is turned off. It won't turn on unless I hold the volume down + power buttons simultaneously. This is causing me to miss alarms and other notifications.
I have updated the phone to the latest software and the problem still persists. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this?

factory reset it or in settings do a phone reset (in about phone). sounds like it could just be a bad installation of the OS. so a phone reset could fix your issue. but then of course you will have to set up your phone again. but a small price to pay to get rid of your headache.

Tried resetting the phone and no dice.
Also, the phone is no longer charging when it shuts itself off every night.
I LOVE Windows phone, but my needs are pretty simple and I just want a straightforward experience. Unfortunately I will be going back to Apple... *sigh*

its been happening to me after the portico update, and it is happening to my girlfriends phone and mine. We wake up and phones off, and in order to turn on we have to hold power and volume rocker down. It has occurred to both of us at least twice last week one phone wired charging while the other charged wirelessly.

This problem began for me the day I received portico. I am on ATT, so I was one of the first to get it. I tried various things for a few days, phone locked up every night on a wireless charger. I finally did a hard reset... Which led to the phone being stuck on the spinning gears. Well, I then held down the three buttons to do a reset and it booted. That was a few days ago, and since then I have had great battery life, no lockups, and restoring the phone was simple too, thanks to the apps and settings backup. What an adventure this has been... It's like an abusive relationship, the 920 doesn't treat me right sometimes, but I'm not willing to leave. Haha

I'm on my second Lumia 920 device, and my phone turns itself off regularly 1-2 times a day. When I wake up it's usually off, which means I can't rely on it as alarm clock. Super annoying.
I'm on ATT as well. I bought my bro an unlocked European version of the phone, and it works flawlessly, and we both have all latest updates, so my thinking was that ATT might have something to do with it. What's this portico thing everyone's been talking about?

I've also been having this problem. It's weird because the first time it happened was on the wireless charger, but after I soft reset it, it was fine for a week on the wireless. Then it locked up again on the wireless so I switched to the wired the next night to see if it was the charger and it still locked up on the wired. After I soft reset it works fine all day, but it's been locking up on a daily basis now (still using wired charger). I have no idea what's wrong with my phone.

Was looking at my phone today. Surprised that noone called today. The ****ty telephone doesnt start at all!
It was after charging in the wall contact.
I have tried start plus volume down, start plus volume up. It is dead!
Such annoying phone, I will return it and demand my money back.

Happens to me so I tried different settings, turned off all background runners that I was able to, that fixed the battery problems, I bought a cheap charging plate off ebay, laid the phone on the plate it started charging but in the morning it was off (missed the alarm), the following night I turned off the wifi & bluetooth ( don't need them when your asleep), it has been 2 months since doing this & the phone has not shut off at all, when the alarm goes off in the morning I just turn on the wifi & bluetooth, it seems to be a problem with either wifi or bluetooth for some reason, I wiil try shutting down 1 at a time to prove which one and will post the results, now if only nokia/windows will allow me to change sms tones to what I want I will be extremly happy

Well, this happened to me last night as well. I was worried sick but then power+down button turned on my phone. Only thing different last night was that before putting it to charging (through wall charger) I was listening to songs through Bluetooth paired headphones and phone was getting a little hot.
