Today at the range, after my 2nd magazine, the slide doesn't stay open at the last round of the magazine anymore. I can open it manually though, but anyone ever have this before and what do you think is wrong?

Sounds silly, but are you sure that you aren't inadvertently pressing the slide release with your thumb? I found that when I held my P239 like my 1911, I would sometimes be depressing the slide release, and the slide would not stay open after the last round.

I only put about 80 rounds through it since the last time I cleaned it, so it should still be ok. And yes I'm sure my thumb is off the slide release

Slide reelease is controlled by the magaizeine.
Check the magaizine...this happens with most all guns when the mag is old and worn out.

try to rack the slide with an empty mag.

that always sees if the slide with lock or not...

if not, try a diff mag...
