    I have a Samsung s9. I use my headphones often, and also plug a jack into the headphones to connect it to my car speakers when I drive. Every time I unplug headphones from the jack, my screen turns on and I end up accidentally pressing something. It also does this when I unplug it from a power source. I would really like my screen to stay in its idle screen mode when I unplug it so I can just toss it in my purse. Can I stop it from automatically opening when it is disconnected from headphones and power jacks?

    It opens the phone?
    You use any security like fingerprint or password?

    In/out of the power cord and headphones will normally turn on the screen. This should bring you to the lock screen assuming the phone previously timed out.

    If you don't have the lock screen enabled, now would be a good time to start using one.

    Samsung S9+ on Android 10.

    When the power is unplugged the screen automatically turns on and burns through battery as well as the AMOLED screen.

    How do I set it so that the screen never, ever automatically turns on or off? I only want it to turn on and off through manually pressing the power button.

    Assuming your Samsung S9 is like most other Android phones, you have no control over this part of the operations. The best you can do is to use a lock screen to prevent unwanted interactions with the home screen.

    Actually, I found an app called MacroDroid that allowed me to create an IFTTT-esque recipe that keeps the screen off when it's unplugged from both power and headphones. Problem solved! Thanks all.

    Hi, welcome to AC!

    I remember that app from back in the day, was pretty good, glad you found a workaround.

    Just curious, you don't use AOD?

    I do use AOD, yes. I like the clock and music visibility functions, but I've scheduled hours so it's not alway on in the true sense. You think that could be the ghost in the machine?

    Thanks for checking in.
