One common problem with Android device is when it fails to wake up automatically. Normally, the device wake up when a phone call, message, alert or scheduled task is activated. Failing to wake up normally can be a software or hardware problem. Software problems are easy to fix, but hardware problems mostly end up replacing component or sending for tech shop repair.
