I'm not too familiar with the Droid but newer phones have a sensor that will turn the screen completely off when its put to your ear. Is there a specific reason you need to watch the screen? Somewhere in settings, under power or power management there should be backlight settings. I know the Droid experiences battery issues and under heavy use will discharge quickly, the backlight may turn off quickly to help preserve the battery.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your input, I am familiar with the reason the Moto Droid does this put I can't find a setting to fix it. It is an intermitting problem. I have taken the phone into the Verizon Store and it works with no problem while in the store. It is irritating because it can be an unexpected problem."

    If it's rather new I'm surprised Verizon won't replace it. You said it won't work in the store is it maybe a light sensor thing? I have the Touch Pro 2 and it often dims in darker rooms and gets bright in the light. This is a separate sensor from the one that tells when its by your face (usually anyways) and I suspect that the Verizon stores are bright. Have you tried not going into the store, give it a shot on the phone and just be persistent, make sure to state its not a settings issue and its inappropriate for it to dim like that, maybe mention its being slow too, try your best to get a replacement I don't see why it shouldn't be covered by some warranty. Goodluck!

Screen frozen

Hold the power button (in) while (pushing) the volume button up and down repetitively as fast as you can.
In the meantime plug in your phone. Even if it does not indicate your phone is charging, the phone is charging.
Also, this phone can only tolerate so many apps.
