Exclamation [Q] Nexus 5 random screen lock

My device Nexus 5 16 gb with android 4.4.2kitkat all stock.The problem is that the phone itself is locked in any application such as now when I write a message has to press several times to unlock. Please do a full reset. And it worked fine but when put a couple of programs namely program premium widgets then the phone started again blocked.Than you in advance!

You could try disabling lock screen for a while in settings/security.
Are you using a case that covers/touches the power button?

Lol I meant You should disable screen lock. So, if it happens again, it might be due to a weird app causing it.
Also, if screen randomly turns off by it self after disabling screen lock, then the problem cold be around the power button.
That's why I asked if you are using a case.

Hi,

I'm having a similar problem from the past week on my nexus 5. it's getting worse as more days go by.
I'm not using any case for the phone. I have tried factory resetting the phone which has not helped.
the phone keeps locking and timing out every 10 seconds or so. I have disabled the lock screen too, but it makes no difference.

I've uploaded a small video of this happening on Youtube. It is actually much worse than seen in the video.
I cannot post the link as I'm a new user.the video is titled "Nexus 5 lock screen loop". It's a 30 second video.

Hope you guys have a solution. Thanks in advance.
