    I have had this happen twice now, The Screen will not timeout and turn off, it just stays on. (pushing the button will turn it off, but then when it comes back on it stays on until you push the button again)

    I have to reset the phone to get the screen to time out again.

    I do not have "stay awake" under applications / development checked.

    I do not have any "screen" utility type apps or any smart actions that deal with screen timeout.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Are you guys connecting to HDMI for output by chance? Seems like the Bionic had the issue; once you connect to HDMI it screws with the screen timeout. Once you go to settings and select your timeout again, it will start working again.

    Nope I've never used the HDMI, I don't even have the cable for it.

    I think it may be GoSMS as it can be set to wake up your screen when you receive a SMS, I've disabled this option to see if the problem persists.

    Everyone who has posted so far, is a reboot the only way you've gotten it to work? Simply toggling timeout options does not work for me.

    Having more issues. I have to reboot the phone to get the screen time out to start working again. It will just stay on forever even set at 15 seconds?

    Turning off the "Screen On" option of GoSMS seems to have fixed my screen timeout issues. No problems at all since disabling that feature.

    My problem was the display off on feature on the smart actions feature. It does not work correctly it causes a glitch in screen time outs. I deleted that trigger and it fixed it

    Same here... I thought I was crazy leaving the room and coming back 5 mind later and the phone was on. I've had it happen while leaving the drop down bar pulled down and left alone, also while playing a few games
