Played it 5-6 hours earlier and put it on standby, and now I can't get it off the swipe screen. Also can't press the "Power off" button.

Anyone have this happen? I figure I'll "wait and see," but it is pretty odd.

This usually fixes most problems with any electronic gadget. :)

This.

I have been pretty disappointed with how glitchy the Vita can be.

I just had that happen to me yesterday. The vita had been in standby since the night before and I had to force shut down, but it worked fine after that.

Fortunately I came back to it and it was working again; I had a pretty long Sunflowers turn going--- which I died 2 minutes afterwards :P

Did you plug it in to charge soon before the issue began?

It had been on the charger for a while; I had been playing, then put it to standby as always. 5-6 hours later it was stuck.  First time it ever happened for me, and I did not like it one bit :nottalking:

It was charging while on standby? Most instances I've heard of the Vita's touch screen going bonkers started while plugged in.

It happens to me from time to time. I never power the vita down, always standby. I think it just needs a reset every once in a while. Shitty bug though.
