    So I have noticed that my phone is not sleeping after the minute I have it set to. I even tried 15secs and it still didn't sleep. Is there something else that can keep the phone from never sleeping other than the one in settings/screen?

    Update: a reboot cleared up the problem.

    When u disconnect from hdmi it does that. Restart the phone and it will fix it.

    It WAS timing out. Suddenly, the past couple days I'm noticing that if I set the phone down and walk away for a bit, when I return it's still on. In the settings > display, the screen is set to time out after 1 minute.

    Is there another spot that I need to check? Could a different setting be overriding that one? I'm not an Android newbie, I'm stumped.

    Ok. I rebooted the phone and turned smart stay ON. NOW (oddly enough) it IS timing out. I had turned smart stay off (b/c it never seemed to respond to my looking at the screen), but I'm wondering if the time out somehow NEEDS smart stay to be enabled?

    Anyone care to experiment? Regardless, it seems to be fixed now.... Thanks for your help!

    This happened to me too. I don't know when it started but I just noticed it yesterday when I had the phone plugged in to the charger in my truck. When I turned the truck off the screen came on without me noticing. I got out of my truck without my phone and when I came back a half hour later the screen was still on and my battery had drained to 67%. I played around with the settings and rebooted the phone and finally it started working again. Not sure what I did to fix it.

    I turned off smart stay the first day when I realized it didn't work. Have had no problems with timing out. You may have just needed a reboot to clear up something.
