    I've had my S4 for about 3 days now and my screen wont turn off when i get a notification of any kind. it's not really a problem when im awake as i can respond to it, but when im asleep and i dont plug my phone into the charger it drains battery life. i've tried everything i can think of to fix it but noting has worked yet any help on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

    I havent had this problem with mine, and this is probably a silly question... but, have you tried a hard reset?

    No problem! Glad its fixed. Hard reset should be one of the first things you try when troubleshooting bc its very quick & easy and fixes alot of things.

    All you have to do is remove the battery for about 30 seconds and put it back in, then power the phone on.
