    Welcome to Android Central! Where did you set the timeout to never? Most phones don't let you do that.

    Got a PM from new member @LarryHolbrook who was having trouble responding to this thread:

    "I had the same problem - I disconnected the charging connection and it stopped 'auto-dimming' -

    I have an AT&T LG K40"

    Thanks, Larry!

    Thanks B Diddy for posting that - I couldn't make the post myself -

    More time went by and 'auto-dimming' returned -

    I'm not certain that was 100% of the problem - I'm thinking somehow the condition of the battery or the battery charge may have something to do with the 'auto-dimming' -

    Hi, welcome!

    You use any extreme battery save modes ?

    I really don't know much the AT&T LG K40 or phones in general - I just noticed that the 'auto-dimming' stopped when I removed the charger - it did return later and I can't remember how long the 'auto-dimming' stay stopped - at the minute, with the charger connected, it's not 'auto-dimming' right away in 5 seconds like it was -

    My battery saver is off and the adaptive battery is on - there are a dozen or so battery saver exclusions which were set by the system which I can't change and two that I set, Alarm Clock Extreme & Contacts - but like I said the battery saver is off -

    I was really hoping my comment might 'trigger' a thought by a phone expert that would actually figure out the problem -
