    All of a sudden my screen does not rotate anymore.
    I went onto settings to make sure the auto lock switch is not checked.
    What else can I do ?
    Thanks

    Tried a complete cold re-boot? Other than that all I can think of is a system restore.

    You should try checking the auto-lock option, then flick the volume button and see if that helps.
    If that doesn't help, then try a hard reset.
    Otherwise, if you have the time, restore.

    EDIT - ninja'd.
    BTW, it's also known as a hard reset. It's when you hold the Power and Home button for 10 seconds and it reboots.
