    It gets darker after a few seconds but it doesn't go black. This just started happening. Weird. Any ideas? I think it's really affecting batt life.

    Thanks.

    Might be an app. Start deleting the last one that you got.I've had this happen once and it was an app I was using.

    what did it end up being?

    With all the automatic updating going on, it could be anything.

    Actually, I changed the screen timeout about 2 days ago and it did nothing. But I just rebooted for the hell of it and it was fixed. So I did the exact 2 steps you gave, just over 2 days. lol.

    Thanks bro.

    Kind of a noob still about some aspects. My screen has just stopped timing out. It will stay lit up until I turn it off manually with the button. The timeout option is set for 30 seconds in settings. I dunno. Any ideas?

    Yoy must have installed an app that has a setting 'prevent phone from sleeping'. Check each app and its settings one by one and you'll probably find the one causing your problem.
