    Screen won't turn off when idle/charging

    Hi everyone,

    My screen won't go to sleep during charging despite the fact that "Stay Awake" under Dev Options is NOT checked. What's going on with this?

    Are you using an app similar to smart actions?

    JuiceDefender, Timeriffic...? That's about it I think.

    JD doesn't have the Timeout control settings enabled...but I might try it to see if it helps.

    Check to see how long you have your "turn screen off" timer set to. If that isn't it, delete all the 3rd party apps that could potentially have an option to keep your phone awake, go into your settings and check then uncheck the "keep awake" option, then reboot your phone.

    Oh yeah, spam ^…

    It's set to 15 seconds, keep awake is off. Is there a way to boot into safe mode so I don't need to uninstall apps?
