Hi, whenever I unlock my phone through active notifications, the lock screen looks like this.

I would like it to look like this, however. I can get it to look like this by tapping outside the white square in the first screenshot. This screen also shows up when I wake up my phone using the power button instead of using active notifications. Is there a way to have the lock screen automatically look like the second screenshot I posted when I wake up my phone using active notifications?

I'm rooted, my boot loader is unlocked, and I'm running stock 4.4 with xposed.

I've read in other threads that this is due to the active notification "prompting" for the unlock in a popup style window, versus you turning the screen on and entering the PIN without executive a task like going to the app in question.

I don't believe there is a way to change it except for pushing the power button instead of swiping the active display.

Wish we could change that. It makes it a pain to use the lock screen icons. You have to tap somewhere outside the PIN entry screen to access a widget.
