    Default Screen staying on even with a screen timeout on?

    Not sure if anyone else has experienced this but I've found my phone staying on after 30 seconds when it should "sleep". Both while charge and not. Anyone have an idea as to why?

    Is this while the phone is on the homescreen, or has an app open? Some apps will hold the device awake while the app is active--like e-reader or video player apps, for example.

    Default

    Have you double checked the screen timeout in Settings/display. Also Settings/general/ check battery and apps. In battery touch the battery discharging to see what has been using power and under apps check running to see what is open. Possibly an app open in the background also check under display to see if face detection or daydream is on. Also have you tried turning the phone off and back on.

    Have you enabled Developer Options? If so, check in there to ensure that "Stay Awake" isn't enabled. That could be why it doesn't shutoff when you are plugged in.

    If happened to me a few days ago too. I put it to sleep using the power button and no problems afterwards.

    Checmed all of that and everything is off. No apps are running. It's usually when I'm charging it.

    Didn't you say that the screen was also staying on even when not on charger? I didn't think that setting would affect the screen if it was off charger.

    Yes I did. I checked while it was off the charger and it didn't stay on so hopefully it was just that day.

    My screen will stay on if I use a cheap charger and makes that connection beep noise every 10 seconds. If I use the charger the phone came with I have no issues of it staying on.
