    I have several network applications which do not appear to work when the screen is off:

    snapchat, android device manager, kik, etc.

    These apps do not appear to function if the screen is off. They will however function with the screen turned on, even when locked.

    I am running a Samsung Galaxy S5 using Lollipop 5.0 on the Verizon network.

    What can I do?

    Are you using any battery saver app that turn off data for certain apps when the screen is off? Or do you have any app installed that allows you to hibernate apps when the screen is off?

    Or are you using wifi and have it set to not stay on when the phone is asleep? That would do it too.

    Thanks for the replies. I am not running any battery saver apps. I actually recently did a factory reset.

    I have both WiFi and mobile data set to on.
    Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep: Always
    Always allow scanning: Unchecked

    Running some tests using Push-Bullet and Android Device Manager(ADM), the following occurs:

    Wifi Off/Mobile-data On: Push successful. ADM Successful.
    Wifi On/Mobile-data On: Push appears only after pressing the power-button to enable the screen. ADM fails.
    Wifi On/Mobile-data Off: Push appears only after pressing the power-button to enable the screen. ADM fails.

    If the Wifi connection is on, but not connected, the push will also be successful (assuming a mobile-data connection is available).
