    Default Home screen on my Galaxy S5 does not turn off when charging

    I have samsung galaxy S5 . It stays on while charging. I tried developer options and unchecked the stay awake box, but it did not work. Somebody please help. I am getting frustrated.

    Thanks !

    Welcome to Android Central! Is Smart Stay on (and are you constantly looking at the phone)? If so, turn off Smart Stay.

    Has this happened before or just started?

    Did it start after an install of an update or app?

    I turned off the smart stay yesterday, but it still does the same.

    I got this phone 2 weeks ago. It was like this all this time.

    This may not do anything, but try booting into Recovery Mode and clearing the system cache partition: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 5 | T-Mobile Support

    You should also review all of your installed apps and see if any of them might have control over keeping the screen awake. E-readers, for example.

    If you just for it and it's been acting like this from the beginning, why not exchange it for another one?

    I figured it out last night. Go to settings then to developer options and unchecked the stay awake. I woke up the this morning and viola the screen was off. Try it and let me know.

    Well, I had this problem too - for months, got upset, but YOUR IDEA WORKED!
    Yee Ha! Thank You, Thank You - what a dumb feature to have it stay on anyways, it should default NOT To stay on.
