    have the same issue. Apple store replaced it and the new one I have does the same thing. Taking this one back today as well to see if they actually have one without this defect. In my case the button intermitently doesn't work though. Design flaw??

    My iPhone 5 arrived yesterday.  Charged it for a couple of hours.  After that I tried to

    power down by pressing the sleep /wake button.  Nothing happened.  Hmmm.....  I thought it was me.  So I pressed the sleep button on the iPhone 4.  Works ok.  Again I pressed the sleep button on the iPhone 5.  Absolutely nothing happened!   I was ******.   Called the Apple store. Told them what happened.  They would not exchange it.  So I went to the AT&T store where I pre-ordered the iPhone 5.   Spoke with the manager.  He said I was not the only one with the sleep/wake button problem.   According to him there's  a lot of upset customers with the same issue.  He said in the mean time I'll just have to use broken iPhone 5 til they get shipments in.  In a few weeks.  He will notify me when they arrive at the store....... We'll see.  Very upset.

    I think it's a design flaw. Seems like a lot of people have the same problem

    Bull.  Even if it were true, which it isn't, there's no way he would say that to you!

    Hmm,  a whopping 4 people posting about this out of 8 million sold.  Not exactly my idea of "a lot."
