    I just picked up the S5 for Att and I was testing out the find my phone app by Google. If the phone is awake the website locates the phone just fine, but once the phone goes into sleep/lock mode the website just searches and never finds the phone. Is there a setting somewhere that needs to be on for the locate to work when the phone is locked/sleep mode? This does not make sense because if I loose my phone it's going to lock after 5 minutes making the find my phone useless.

    Did you disable location on screen off?

    I did not see an option to do that.

    I figured it out, it does work when the phone is in sleep mode, it just takes a lot longer to locate versus when the phone is awake.
