    Fellow Rezounders;

    I am rooted, and running Stock GB.

    I'm sure I'm missing something obvious (or did something stupid). I've installed a few of the 'Flashlight' or 'Torch' application onto my Rezound (Nexus Torch, TeslaLED, etc). I do like using my phone as a flashlight in many situations.

    However I've noticed that when the screen itself turns off (either by timing out, or manually), the flashlight turns off too. This is very bothersome as I then need to keep turning it back on and/or I accidentally keep hitting icons on my home page(s).

    Now with my old D1 this didn't happen. I don't know if maybe I've installed something, or changed a setting that's causing this to happen, or if its a Rezound issue or not.

    I could have sworn this didn't happen when I first got my phone (about two months ago), but since then I've wiped it twice (I had that silly reboot loop/4G issue until I learned to remove the back or change the connect to 4G on boot setting).

    I would appreciate your thoughts/suggestions

    Thanks in Advance;

    A (in the dark) Bug :)

    I use the flashlight (Droidlight) that uses the camera's flash and not the main screen for light. Never had a problem with it.

    In the droid 1 days moto released a moto device specific app called "Droidlight" names changed recently i think. From what i heard its working on the nexus.

    It uses the camera led and stays on for 5 mins at a time. Even when screen times out.

    I figured it Out (Kinda)

    Thanks everyone for their help and advice on this minor (yet annoying) issue.

    I'm not sure how exactly I fixed it but I did. I think I may have had a 'battery saving' program installed that was inhibiting the flashlight function when the screen was off.

    I removed a few programs and checked my settings in the the one(s) I had left. I also tried tiny flashlight +LED, and found it works perfectly.

    I did find like most of you mentioned that it does turn off for a second when you turn the screen off, but then comes back on (much better than before). I can live with this, and I love the 'shake to turn on in Lock mode' that tiny flashlight has. . . except when I'm playing with my 2 1/2 yearold twin boys and the light randomly turns on. But it doesn't happen often.

    Anyway, I'm all good, and thanks again for helping me resolve this issue.

    What would I do with out my Rezouding Friends.
