While plugged into charger it stays awake just the same, but even if i turn it off manually it will light up by itself in 5 seconds...
How to ascertain what keeps my phone awake ? This is annoying...
P.S. Prefer not to wipe if i can...
IF you are sure
everything normal in Settings
This can happen because of some bad apps (called malware or ...)
u should check if u installed an application that get System Permissions to wake ur screen up!
u can search "wakelock permission android
" to read more about it.
the solution is finding this app and uninstall it
if u cannot find it so u need to Reset to Factory
and If u guess an app can do this but problem remains after uninstall it then it s problem in ur rom
u can Flash another Stock firmware (sammobile.com/firmware) so u don't need to wipe rom.
after all if u still see the same issue WIPE it
if it was useful
