    Not sure if it's happening on all new Marshmallow versions, but I've only seen it in Samsung units. However, most of the time it is triggered by Facebook's Messenger's floating chat-heads. Once I close those (or force close Messenger), I don't get the 'error'.

    I got those all the time on my HTC One M8, Nova launcher had something to do with it. Never did figure it out.

    mmm... I do have Nova installed, too. Maybe something about Accessibility Options (for gestures)? I know a lot of people have issues because of this.

    Is this particular issue.. I was just trying to give Instagram access to my camera... I go to overlay settings and the toggle is locked. Very frustrating

    Yup, you have to disable the app (or close it) that's causing the overlay problem. Most of the time it's apps that can, well, overlay items on top of everything else (this is to avoid apps that change settings or block things without your knowledge). Like I said, for me (and most other posts I've seen here), it's nearly always Facebook Messenger if you use chat heads. Close them and try the permission again and you shouldn't have issues (or go to the app's permission area in the settings and you can grant them directly there without having to worry about the overlay message).

    I think with your help I figured it out... Like previously I said the options/toggles are locked... So i tried it again with the Instagram app closed and the toggles worked. Thanks
