White screen of death only when trying to unlock...

Hey all, i am getting a white screen of death on my 3gs.

It only happens when I lock the screen and then trying to unlock it. If I leave it unlocked then it works fine but obviously will the drain the battery rapidly.

But if i lock the screen, I have to push the sleep button repeatedly, sometimes upwards of 30 times before the unlock slider shows up or I just boot it using sleep+home method.

I was on iOS4.1 when the issue occurred, upgraded to 5.0.1 and the issue still persists.

Any thoughts or recommendations?
