    Hi all.
    Two problems here which I'm presuming have the same fix.

    1) This happens when I'm using the phone, say, listening to music via Bluetooth headset. When I receive a message or email, the screen will automatically light up to the unlock screen showing a notification pop up that I have a message. Because the phone is in my pocket and the screen is swipe unlocked, which I prefer, it is highly likely that the phone will unlock fully - so by the time I look at the phone it's done all sorts of things I didn't want.

    2) When answering a phone call, the screen obviously lights up as normal. I have set it up so that when the phone is upright the screen will go blank. But, when I have finished a call using the headset, the screen comes back on again and shows the contact and because the phone is unlocked it ends up doing things I didn't want.

    Please can someone tell me how to keep the screen off during and after a phone call or notification!
    Is there a code to write or delete that can make it so that when I receive a phone call or notification I must press the power button to display the screen like I normally do to see the time?

    Any assistance is very much appreciated!

    Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Marshmallow forum to the Note 4 forum, since this may be more of a device-specific issue rather than a Marshmallow issue.

    Is your Lock Automatically option set to Immediately? http://www.verizonwireless.com/suppo...e-base-123532/. If so, and assuming Smart Lock isn't turned on, then the phone should not unlock, even if the screen lights up with the lockscreen notification.
