this happens to me as well. sometimes ill be playing a game or doing whatever on my vita, ill hit the sleep button and put it in my case and then not even 10 min later when I take it back out of the case it wont turn on. sometimes its even longer than 10 min, and when i pull it out of the case the light is a solid blue and i am forced to hold the power button down for 30 seconds and reboot the vita.
i thought i read somewhere (from Sony) that the 1.69 update was supposed to fix crashes and things like this, and that is why it was optional. The 1.69 update did help a little, but the issue is still there. hoping this can be fixed soon.
Also, a little unrelated but still concerning to me is the standby/sleep battery life. I have read from multiple sites that the Vita's battery lasts a whole week in sleep mode with only a little sliver of the batter meter draining. the one thing i have noticed is that if my Vita is not totally powered off the battery will be totally dead the next time i go to use it. last night for example my Vita was about 50% and this morning i had to plug it in, flashing orange light upon connecting it to the charger telling me that the battery was totally drained. I feel like this isnt right. Whenever i have any remaining battery it just disappears if i leave it for any extended amount of time in sleep mode.
anyone that has this problem go talk to sony not us. sony gave a1 yr manufactures warrenty. they will fix it for you or replace it.
