Default [Q] Possible to undim without activating screen?

When the screen auto-dims before timing out and I touch the screen to undim the display, the touch registers which gets annoying, e.g., when that means that menus are popping up in the open app and I have to touch again to close them. Is there a way to emulate iOS behavior here, i.e., when dim the first touch to the screen undims and only successive touches register?
