I might have been hasty when I reported that downgrading from OS V.7.1 to 7.0 resolved the lock button not working problem. It appeared to have done the trick but I noticed the next day that the problem had resurfaced.
After I had originally upgraded to OS 7.1 I downloaded 3 free applications to my BB (2 games and a flashlight app).
I uninstalled the three applications while still running 7.0 and the lock button starting functioning properly and has been for the last 2 weeks.
Today I upgraded to 7.1 again and the lock button appears to still function as it should. It could be possible that the applications I loaded after upgrading where the root cause of the issue.
If the lock button status changes on my BB over the next 24 hours I'll update the post again.
