iPhone restarts when going in standby mode.

I´m struggling with my Iphone 4S after my kid spilled some water on it. It was not much and there was no traces of water anywhere when i opened it.

After a day it started turning off and/or restarting by itself. Changed the battery but same issue.

Changed the logic board but still the same issue.

Found out after a while that it does not shut off as long as it is in use but when it goes into standby and the screen goes black it restarts or shuts off after a few minutes.

Anyone have an idea what´s causing this?

My next try would be to change the dock or the power button?!

try to replace the dock connector, it may be shorted by the water spilled by your kid or try restore the IOS.

I´ve tried restoring IOS, and also the logic board so that´s not the problem. Strange that a short reboots only then the phone is in standby.
