    Have you looked in : Settings>Display>Sleep , to set how long you want the phone to stay awake after inactivity ?
    I have mine set for 30 seconds for example

    Hello.

    Does it do it when you exit the app?

    1. Check to see if smart stay is on. Turn it off if so.

    2. Check the developer options in the settings to see if stay awake is checked.
