Playbook screen Freezes on wake

Hi, 2 days ago when I woke my playbook it stayed black with a bunch of grey parallel lines. I turned it off and back on again and it worked. It has since done this 4 more times, including the most recent where it required a full power down to start again. I have reset the device a few times since this started. Please tell me it's not going to die soon, I've only had it since x-mas!
