    my S4 would randomly revert itself to 2-sec screen time out. it dims the screen in 1 second, then turns off the screen in the next second. I keep going back to set it at 10 minutes but it would randomly change to 2-sec again. I don't know how to duplicate it but yesterday I had to change it 5 or 6 times already...does anybody know why or how to fix?

    thanks

    Yes - seen that as well on my new S4. Also random and also very annoying. Not sure what triggers it yet. How does a 2 second timeout make sense anyway??

    I know this isn't a real fix, but if you enable Smart Stay from the dropdown bar, then it won't time out while you're looking at it...

    Do any of you folks have "Power Saving Mode" enabled? (Settings --> My Device --> Power Saving Mode)

    Try turning that off and see if that helps.

    I really think Samsung should have better labeled that service...they should have called it "Cripple your device mode"

    one work-around i found was to download the "screen timeout toggle" app from google play and add the widget to the home screen. tapping it would make the screen stay on...presumably forever...i rather turn the screen off myself than have it turn off on me every 2 seconds...

    would love to hear what other solutions there are...

    I had the same problem and associated it with one of my apps "Lightflow". I uninstalled and reinstalled a few times to be certain, and each time I uninstalled it, the iissue stopped. Reinstalled, and it started right back up again. Now that I don't have it installed I havent had the issue for a while. If you don't have lightflow, perhaps it is another app that is causing the problem. I was pulling my hair out until I figured it out lol

    I have the same issue and I have Light Flow installed. So far, I can live with it because it only changes to 1 second time out once a day, every other day.

    Thanks light flow was my issue, took it off my phone and no issues since!


    Heard light manager is the same and has less issues. I'll just stop playing with my light and leave it default for now it does not sound like the phone likes it's lights being messed with anyways. Not to mention light flow never even worked for me
