    Ok.

    Am I crazy? I had this option. I had set this option.

    I did get a system update after that.

    Now, I can't, for the life of me, find the option.

    I was so excited to see that I could keep it from lighting up my room while we try to sleep without flipping the screen down, but it came on last night & I spent forever trying to locate the option to set "dark hours".

    I have just spent even more time searching for it in the Moto app & my regular phone settings to no avail.

    I found an old FAQ on the Moto features but it's WAY off. I have no options when I tap the menu button, so I'm assuming things have changed greatly since that FAQ was written.

    I swear the dark hours setting was under Moto Display, but it's gone now.

    Am I crazy? Did they remove the feature? Why!?

    Nope. That's Daydream. Different thing. I have those settings.

    Moto Display is when the screen lights up for a notification or when you wave your hand over it. I swear the option was within the Moto app.

    It's in the Moto app. You tap the three stars at the top.

    I'm assuming that's your Moto app, because everything else matches up, but I don't see that first screen.

    That's where I thought it was, but I don't have it.

    When I open the Moto app, I get this:

    & When I go into display, I get this:

    The hits just keep on coming with this phone. It's all little things so far & I'm loving the phone in spite of them, but dang.

    Figures.

    Also found this, but I'm assuming it's an older version as well & does me no good.

    I know they've been streamlining some of these features, but it'd be nice if they kept something as simple as this option.

    Yeah, Moto Display is now simply Moto.

    That's odd, it's a newer version number but it "looks" like the old Moto App from Lollipop.
