    Thumbs down Screen lock problem with Nexus 5

    I got nexus 5 a week back and sometimes the screen lock does not work even if I click power button to lock the screen. I just have to wait to get battery down then it starts working, i restart the phone couple of times but the same problem appears screen does not get locked automatically nor manually.

    Does anybody else is having the same issue??

    Welcome to Android Central! I'm afraid I don't quite understand what you're trying to describe. You're saying that the phone won't lock properly when you press the Power button? That sometimes when you press Power to turn the screen off, then press it again to turn it on again, it goes directly to a homescreen instead of the lockscreen?

    In Settings>Security, do you have "Power button instantly locks" checked? If it is unchecked, the phone won't lock until the amount of time specified in the "Automatically lock" setting has passed.

    Actually the problem here is that this phone sometimes does not lock itself as in if i made the inactive timeout as 15 sec then it doesn't do so, it never sleep even if i press power button to lock the screen forcefully and then i have to wait for the battery to go below 15% then phone screen lock starts automatically like within 15 secs it sleeps.

    i hope i make u understand now.

    Well, since these functions normally work well for all other users, the question becomes why do they not work for you?

    Are you rooted? Are you running a custom ROM and/or kernel?

    Have you installed any battery saving apps? Other utility apps? Security apps?

    Hm, yeah it could potentially be a rogue app like N4Newbie alluded to. Either of you experiencing the issue after a factory reset?

    Problems in lockscreens when first booting N5 in the morning
    Hello everyone,

    I have my Nexus 5 since january. It`s been a really great experience.
    I love to customize my N5. I am always changing icons, wallpapers and lockscreen looks.
    For that, I keep looking for new apps in foruns like this, or Mycolorscreen, or Deviantart and etc.
    One of this days, I found these lockscreen apps:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...kscreen.galaxy
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...screen.optimus
    and
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ockscreen.sony
    All of them are from the same developer. They are really beautiful, well designed and I was very happy with the look and experience that those apps gave me.
    But soon I notice something strange when I first boot my phone in the morning: the N5 kept the home screen lit... It did not matter how many times I pushed the main button, trying to turn the scrren off and get the lockscreen working. I also noticed that the apps that usually open in the first boot were not getting started. Their notifications were not showing up. The screen kept ligthen up in my homescreen...
    I was suspecting that these apps that were working properly before the installation of the three lockscreen apps above, were "fighting" with the new apps (the lockscreen apps). As the lcokscreen apps are from the same developer, I figured that they were the problem. So I unsitalled them. The apps that have always been working fine before the lockscreen apps have been installed are:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roid.lightflow
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oid.g3watchdog
    and
    http://www.amazon.com.br/MacroPinch-...0-20&m1k=vb_ac
    I have been using the stock lockscreen since then...

    Today (May 11th), I found the following lockscreen app:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...flocker.global
    and decided to give it a try. And I loved it. It is a very beautiful lockscreen.
    But after trying it for some time, learning how to use it... I reeboted my N5...
    Unfortunally, the issue I (tried to) describe above happened again. After reeboting, the screen got lightened all the time. I push the main button and the scrren did not turn off. 3G watchdog, Battery and Lighfolw don`t show the notifications of starting up.
    So, I am back in Nexus 5 sotck lockscreen!

    I would love to use these lockscreen apps. But I don`t know what is going on. Can someone pelas help me???

    I am sorry if this thread is confused. It is not easy to try to explain it in english. lol

    By the way... My N5 is NOT ROOTED
