    Hi, all. I'm new to the forums and I have an issue I'm hoping to get some help with. I've Googled it but I haven't seen anything about the exact problem.

    I have my screen set to time out after 1 minute, but sometimes it only stays on for a few seconds before turning off. I have double checked the setting, and it is definitely still set to 1 minute.

    I think this might be due to some app that is running in the background, because running Advanced Task Killer seems to fix it temporarily, but I can't figure out which app it might be.

    I was just wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem? It's been happening for a while now and it's driving me crazy!

    I think it may have been Screen Mode Widget Lite. After I posted, I uninstalled that and replaced it with No Lock and my screen has not timed out early since. It's only been about 15 minutes, so I'll give it some time just to make sure.
