I did do that and it was set for 2 minutes, however my understanding is that the timer should commence from when the phone is sitting idle. Certainly not when someone is in the middle of say typing an email, scrolling through settings for an app, etc. If there is human input taking place on the phone, then the timer should not be running until after theme last input.
I tried setting it to Never timeout and left it there for awhile. Now I have gone back to the 2 minute setting. The phone didn't waste any time in shutting off the screen after the first idle period. The real test will come when I start to use the phone. Interestingly, when I just brought the phone back on from the unlock state, after it went dark, it opened up in LinkedIn, which I wasn't even using today. I'll give the phone the benefit of the doubt and assume that maybe I inadvertently hit that icon before it closed down, but I am reasonably certain that I did not.
I think I will go find a watch with a sweep second hand and time it :) (not right now as I have more important real life issues, but I will check it out at some point).
Yeah, there is definitely something wrong. The time out should be the time it is sitting idle with no activity happening on the screen. Did you try a restart or quick reboot (hold power button and volume down until it shuts down).
