    For some reason my screen turns off when I'm not doing anything during a game. For example, if I'm waiting for someone else's turn or something, it turns off! Any way to fix this? Very frustrating.

    Just kidding.

    Anyhow, what game are you referring to? I'm thinking if it's something like Ruzzle (s/p?), the game might not have the permission written to keep the phone awake.

    Only thing I can suggest is:

    Try deleting & reinstalling the game.

    Check your settings on your phone. Make sure nothing looks like it's been changed.

    You could always change your settings to keep the phone awake.

    But no seriously, all games, whether I'm waiting for my turn or not. Like Marvel's Avengers Alliance or Sonic Dash, or What's the Phrase? If I don't touch the screen, it turns off. Doesn't make any sense! My old phone used to treat games like videos, as long as I'm on them, it wouldn't turn off.

    I tried to search more in the forums here and xda. Good news is, I don't think your phone it's broken from what I've read. I truly believe that these games, with multiplayer and the note 3 ignores the stay awake feature. I have tried Ruzzle and Real Racing 3 (I think). Both games my phone didn't stay awake. But it did stay awake in Sonic, hidden object, water racing game. Sorry I couldn't be more help. Bug feature for now? Maybe more members could chime in?

    Different sonic game, not the one you have. The classic one player game.

    Not a game but when I'm watching videos like NFL Red Zone using the Bell TV app.
