Default Lock screen being bi passed

I have my lock screen set up as a pattern, and sometimes it'll just bi pass the entire lock screen and turn my phone on right to my home screen. Has anyone had this and have a fix?

In settings -> security
There is an option called automatically lock, set it to "immediately" and it will lock at instantly when the screen goes off. If it is set to anything else, it is possible to use the phone without the pattern until that time is reached.

There is a setting in security where u can chose power button instantly locks. Look for the option power button, not automatically lock.
