I was using my new Htc Evo 4G phone, it was about half charged, working great, then when it timed out (screen went black), it would not come back when I pushed the power button, and it still will not come back on.  If any suggestions, please email me at  Thank you.

    Mine is doing that too.  Would love to know what the deal is.

    Have you tried pulling the battery ? I shut mine off every night to charge. One morning it would not respond. I pulled the battery for

    about thirty seconds and it came right on. Hope this helps.

    Thank you for your reply.  I too have been pulling the battery to restart it; however I was having do it all the time.  I went into the Sprint store on Saturday night and they said it may be the Advance Task Killer that is messing up the phone (yes, they told me to add that app when I bought it). I was informed that Android 1.5 and above manage their tasks in a different way than their predecessors. It only causes problems with the EVO because you are actually killing apps that are essential for the phone to run.   So I uninstall it immediately and no longer using a task manager.  It worked fine until yesterday.  Now the phone won’t stay on.  Sprint is ordering a replacement.
