    You could try a factory reset. If that doesn't help I'd send it in for a replacement.

    I would try buying a second battery and swapping it out with your existing battery. See if that makes a difference.

    I keep forgetting the S3 has a removable battery since most newer phones don't. D'oh.

    Mate, same here! I've had some strange happenings with my S3 since I bought online back in Aug but nothing like last night. I'm running 4.1.1 and since that version I've noticed a new screen appears randomly when not being used that displays general time and weather for what it thinks is my current location, usually wrong too! It makes a new sound as well when going I to this mode. Last night after being asleep for a sort while it started this as has a few other nights. I decided not tonight and did a full power off. No SH*T about 5 minutes later it turned itself back on and did its thing. I know I successfully shutdown because I watched and waited then confirmed by pushing home button! I've learned from previous shutdowns not to close the cover on it before shutdown completes as this prevents it shutting down generally. I too have battery charge/drain issues when this new window appears but thought was result of dodgy adapter sent with my phone bought through Aus website, sent from Hong Kong with a Chezk owners manual. Don't bother telling me to send it back as they wouldn't warranty a pixel issue after initial delivery! Will pull battery too next time keeps me awake! Did get sleep last night by muting but battery flat this morning and was near full charge last night.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Be careful where you buy your phone. Make sure they are reputable dealer with good reviews. If it's coming from China there's a real good chance it could be a knockoff, in which case Samsung will not honor their stock warranty. Just a word of advice for what it's worth.

    My S3 had recently been randomly restarting, and not charging normally, and then one day it just shut off and wouldn't turn back on. I had to send it away for repairs under warranty and they ended up replacing the mainboard. Hopefully your problem is something simple, and you won't have to send it out for repairs.
