    Default Screen turns off when tilted

    Hey guys, sorry if this has been brought up before, I couldn't find anything on it.

    Basically what happens is if I tilt my phone 90 degrees to either side and forward a bit in a quick motion, it turns the screen off. Much like as if I had pressed the power button. If I tilt it back quickly it turns back on again.

    This sounds like it should just be a motion control feature misbehaving, so I disabled every option in motions and gestures, but no effect. Is there another option hiding somewhere I don't know about?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much!

    Ok, so I restarted my phone and it stopped happening... Feeling a touch foolish just now, oops
    Still I would be curious if anyone else has experienced the issue, or any ideas as to what it could be.

    That is definitely weird.. I'd test it for the next few days (tilting it) and see if it does it again... If not it could of maybe been trying to go landscape mode when you tilted and bugged out instead.
