I had this issue and fixed it by turning the phone off and when I turned it back on, held both of the volume keys down until a menu came up. If you poke around in there, theres a screen recalibration tool.

Happens to me once in a while, often I carry the Streak in my shirt pocket and even after a few minutes, I can try and take it out and unlock and the screen's gone all barmy. I think I have electric nipples or something. I find I can usually coax it back into action with some multi-touch messing around for a minute, though sometimes I too give up and power off / power on to clear it.

Are you finding that some areas of the screen do respond just a little bit, but there's no consistency and you can't get it to 'hold' long enough to move the unlock slider before it lets go again? If so that's the same sort of thing I get, and I think static is to blame. I've never had to actually recalibrate to get it back to normal again though.

I did the recalibration and it works well not a 100% but maybe 95
