For some reason my phone has to be turned off manually every time. Does not time out at all. Set to 30 seconds.
Dev options "stay awake" is off, daydreaming is off, most of the bells and whistles are off (air view, gestures, etc...)
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...

Help ?

P.S. Prefer not to wipe if i can...

IF you are sure everything normal in Settings
so
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

Hit Thanks if it was useful

Yup but a data factory reset would be adviced too next to flashing a stock rom first.

Try to remember which apps you installed recently and force stop one by one until the screen times out.
