    I have a pixel 2 xl and my power button has been doing something really weird lately. Whenever I press the button, it activates twice. So if I try to press it, it turns the screen off and immediately back on. I know it's activating twice because it would activate the camera shortcut. Is there any way to add a minimum delay between button presses, so the phone would see two very close inputs as one press.

    Double check your case if you use one is not interfering, also make sure your buttons are free and not sticky .

    There is a "minimum time between presses'" function in there, because any mechanical switch "bounces" (that's actually the technical term for it), so you get a dozen or more "press-release cycles" when you press it, but the time is on the order of about a millisecond. If none of mustang's suggestions work, you probably have a bad power switch, and it has to be replaced. (That's one reason I use the fingerprint scanner to wake the phone and a rooted app to turn the screen off - hardware wears out, software doesn't. As long as the FPS doesn't quit on me when it gets cold - again.)
