Try turning the phone off and pulling the battery for a min or two, then replace battery and turn it back on. This does a soft re-set of your phone.
If that did not fix it, you can try menu/settings/Applications/Manage applications/ALL and clear data and cache if it will let you. Then Restart phone.
Hi CODYANDMEL1, there are a few things that can cause this, first of all do you have any apps that act as task manager, or security? if you do remove them. after that go to menu>settings>applications>manage applications, tap on tw launcher, tap force stop, then clear cache/data, then power phone off then back on, please let me know if this helps
Are you pressing the home button when the screen is already on the home page? To be more specific, are you feeling vibrations (one vibrate, few seconds pause, then two vibrates)? If so, then that is the problem. Don't touch the home button when you are already on the home page. Hopefully this glitch will be fixed and that the system will simply ignore it instead of trying to go home when already home. lol
Before you consider a factory restore, which by the way does not have to be performed in a sprint store, look at your installed apps. Task killers, and security software some times can lead to undesired behavior. also try resetting/clearing TW launcher from Menu > settings > applications > manage applications > all. Please let me know if this helps.
