I am a maxx user for many months now and am curious if anyone has a fix for my issue or if I an using it wrong.. I am a heavy user and it drives me nuts when the display goes to sleep with no instant/quick way to wake. Example...if I make a call.. Either by dialing or from contacts...immediately the screen shuts off.....tapping does not wake up... I have to push power button.... Is this normal? I frequently want to put call on speaker or access calendar etc. I find it very unproductive.
Secondly... While the active display notifications are great..I often see them as they are fading out. If i get to phone once they have faded out...I cannot wake the phone unless push power button. Picking up phone... Shaking twisting etc does not wake it.
Am I doing something wrong?. I am close to tossing phone for something new.

For the phone powering on, unless you've turned on settings / acccessibility / power button ends call, you can light the screen on a speakerphone call by pressing the power button. That's the only way, though, on a call with the phone not held to your face.
Oh, I thought of another way to power the phone on without pressing power: Setting / touchless controls. Turn that on and train the phone. Now you can say "OK Google Now" to power the phone on with your voice. It opens to a search screen; you can press home to go back home, etc.

If your screen shuts off as soon as you make a call, your proximity sensor is probably seeing something (perhaps a screen protector?). It only turns off for me if I put my face or my finger to the left of the ear speaker. Yours shouldn't turn off the phone unless it thinks your face is near the screen. If you have a screen protector, you may need to try using the phone without it to see if that is causing the problem.
