Sometimes my sleep/wake button doesn't work. I can feel it move, but nothing happens. I did a search and somebody said they fixed it with compressed air, but they didn't provide any details. Is this a common problem? Is there an official Apple solution? Thanks.

    Hi Neil,

    I'd suggest making an appointment at your local Apple Store to see a Genius. I wouldn't recommend using compressed air just in case it damages any other internal components.

    Thank you for the helpful suggestion. I'll make sure to take the phone to the Apple store instead of attempting to clean it myself. I'm still hoping that somebody will come here with an easy fix I can do myself, but that doesn't look realistic.
