Xoom unable to wake from sleep mode

I've noticed this problem in the last month or so, where when I try to use my Xoom after it hasn't been used for a while, it just remains completely unresponsive.  The white LED will continue to flash, telling me I have a new E-mail or something, but I just can't wake it up with the power button.  I'm forced to do the reset by holding down the volume and power buttons together.  This problems is happening several times a week, and is really becoming a pain when I expect to just be able to take out the tablet and login to it.   It's a stock 3G version that has been encrypted and is using a password.  I don't remember this happening before the 3.1 update.  I have seen other manufacturers tablets having similar issues lately.  Any ideas?

are you using the protective case that folds out to provide a stand for yourXoom ? Sometimes theXoom slides out of the case a little way. This cause the volume down button to be held in a depressed state. Don't know if this would cause your problem but it might.:-)

I've checked and nothing is in contact with the buttons.  :smileysad:

Doesn't seem likeabroken power switch since it works with the volume switch to effecuate Reset.
If it has ever worked properly then you might suspect acorruptApp download.
You could approximate a binary search by uninstallimg hAlf of the apps you have installed.
If the problem disappears, then reinstall half of the apps you just remained to see if the problem reoccurs.

I was kind of hoping to be able to get the 4G update before I try something drastic like removing lots of apps or doing a factory reset.   I'd hate to reinstall everything twice.
