Usually I just hit the 'power' button or whatever it is on the corner of the phone. Most of the time just hitting this once wakes it up instantly. Sometimes though, hitting it does nothing even if I try again a few times. I then usually have to hold the power button until the 'turn off' dialog pops and wakes the phone up. Is there a certain method for waking that should always work?

Hmm seems like the simple answer. I swear that on my phone the back button sometimes didn't work for waking it up... I'll have to go back to it again, maybe I wasn't hitting it all the way or something.
