    i'm so sorry, that sounds like a big bug. you might have to return it :[
    try to go to settings and restore it to factory default and see if that helps.
    if it doesn't, hopefully an ota update will help

    Take it back to where you bought it. Either it's pooched or you're doing something wrong. One way or the other, they'll help you. I don't have my S3 yet, so that's all I can tell you, sorry.

    I hope I don't have to take it back,I take off the back and battery then it starts up ok.it is probably something I am doing wrong in the settings.I am new to Samsung previously having Nokia and HTC.

    Does it happen every time, or just occasionally?

    Are there specific actions that you take that either do, or do not, cause it to happen?

    It happens if I leave my phone idle for half an hour or more,it doesn't happen when the screen goes off after say 5 mins,it works fine then.its only when I leave it for a while.so frustrating,great phone other than that.

    Yep sounds like a wake bug there or hardware issue... I would go with possible hardware issue at this point and just get the device replaced....

    You could always try a reset first to see if that will fix it.
