    Default S-View flip cover randomly stops doing the auto wake on/off

    I have the wireless S-View Cover and it randomly stops doing the auto wake on/off screen when opening and shutting the flip cover.

    A quick reboot gets it working again though, so it's not the cover, but probably an OS issue or something

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Is it a genuine Samsung one and do you use a 3rd party launcher that may cause a problem ?

    I presume you are talking about after a few mins it wont work if you close and re open after a few seconds depending on your screen timeout settings

    No. It won't work at all till I restart the phone.

    I am suspecting the first Gen samsung wireless charging pad since it always happens after placing it on the pad.

    I had the same problem and it was solved by checking if the case was properly attached to the back. One of the "clips" wasn't press good enough and there was not clicked well

    Nah, mine is connected perfectly. It works and then randomly stops working. Must be some weird software glitch

    I have the same problem. It will work perfectly most of the time but randomly I'll open the cover and be greeted by a black screen or the s-view window will still be displayed even though the case is open. I bought mine directly from Samsung.

    I ended up exchanging mine and haven't run into this issue since

    I'm pretty sure mine is software related. Today I removed the cover and made sure it was firmly in place upon re-installation. I then did a factory reset and slowly reinstalled apps and changed settings while monitoring the sview operation. The problem came back after I added the pedometer and weather to the sview display. I removed them and the problem has not returned in the last 4 hours.

    I thought it was a software issue too since a reboot fixed it. But after exchanging it for another one, I haven't seen the issue return at all

    Have you tried clearing the Sview application cache?

    Settings>Application>Application Manager> Swipe to All> Open com.sec.android.sviewcover > Clear Cache

    Lemme know if it works if you have to try it, please! I was having the same trouble as you and I was beyond my return/exchange date with Verizon. Clearing the cache has worked so far for me. It was at a ridiculously high level for a passive app. I want to be sure I've actually fixed the problem and I'm not just crazy.
