I am wondering whether anyone else has this issue where you need to click the power button multiple times for the lockscreen to make it sleep. It would go out for a second and then re-awaken. I would need to hit it about 3-4 times before it shuts off. I have a HTC Trophy if that really matters. I have a feeling it might be an app keeping it awake but I have alot of apps to go through. I searched but there doesn't seem to be an answer. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I've got an HTC HD7 as well as an HTC EVO 3D. Both have lousy power buttons that at times require multiple pushes before they activate. I think it's just bad design by HTC.

I have an HTC Surround and I've seen that happen before as well. I didn't notice a pattern, but it happened much more often before Mango. My new Lumia 800 hasn't shown any signs of doing this yet, so it leads me to think that this might be (another) HTC only bug...

I had this problem on my Lumia 710 as well. It turns out it's the camera button accidentally being pushed. It happens when I power off the phone and Lumia 710's camera button is so subtle and easy to full press with the just grip of my hand that I would accidentally grip it and it would turn off and then back on as if it were a bug or something. It's annoying, but I think the screen times out anyway, so I don't worry about it too much.
IDK if this is what you're experiencing, but it sounds familiar to what I experience sometimes....
To test it, put your phone to sleep, and right when the screen starts to dim push the camera button and see if that replicates it.

I did find this app called "Stop The Music" that allows you to close all the music apps and remove the music controls from the lockscreen. I have not had any issue since then.

Well, after several days of switching off apps/settings and trying to find a solution to this issue, I think I narrowed it down to ergonomics apparently. Whenever I hit the power button with my right hand, my thumb grip would hit the camera button (as someone in this thread has mentioned). Plain and simple. I could not recreate this problem as I use my left hand to switch off the phone and it has not appeared ever since.
There is a setting that allows you to switch off the camera button on wake up so it eliminates this issue. I like to have the camera button readily available so I just have to re-train my power off hand. :)
