Attentive display not working?

I was playing around with my phone last night and this morning and noticed it would dim very rapidly (I have both the setting to not dim while I'm looking and also dim faster when I'm not looking checked). I know it doesn't work in low light conditions, but I pulled up the 'try me now' feature in a couple areas of the house this morning with decent light and it wasn't detecting me at all.

Then I tried it on the same spot on the couch with a light right behind me that it was obviously working a couple days back...I specifically remember the face coming on the display and going away when I twisted it. And it doesn't detect me at all, just says "I cant see your face." What gives? Am I missing something here?

EDIT: A restart appears to have cured the problem, would anyone know why it would stop working randomly?

Pretty sure this is a Moto bug on Lollipop... at least that is when it started for me on my Moto X. Sometimes a restart doesn't fix it for me, but just turning it off, using the phone for a while, and then back on, does.

Report it to Moto so it gets fixed in 5.0.1.
