    Whenever I try to just lock my tablet by pressing the power button once, it turns off the tablet completely, and then I have to wait a few minutes before I can turn it on again. It's really frustrating, I had to get my tablet replaced before, and I don't want to have to get a new one.

    Are you just pressing it or are you holding it got extended periods of time?
    If you recently got it replaced, I'd suggest doing it again (even though it can be annoying and time consuming) or getting a new tablet altogether.

    When I try to lock it, I just press it once, no holding. When it has been shut off, I hold it (the power button) in an attempt to turn it back on, but it won't let me until after a few minutes have passed.

    Welcome to AC
    Well, then that definitely seems like an issue either with the hardware on the device. Like I mentioned above, even though it can be frustrating to have to replace your devices so quickly, I would suggest getting a new one or a different device altogether.

    Welcome to Android Central! My guess is that it's faulty hardware or firmware, which is more common with these cheaper off-brand devices. I once had a terrible "Superpad" from China that I could put to sleep, but if I didn't wake it up after about 20 minutes, it would simply power off. Not sure if this was by design, since the battery life was terrible, or if it was a flaw.

    No problem
