The screen does turn on after a couple tries. I have to press power button on (lights turn on), turn off, then back on. The number of tries varies. If I turn it off and back on immediately- then it comes back right away. Whenever I am done with a call, the screen stays off and I have to press the power button to get the screen back. I tried setting the phone to turn the screen on when plugging in charger cable but screen doesn't turn on right away. The auto-brightness seems to be working properly.

I didn't have this issue running the stock relay 4g rom. I have also tried the CarbonMod rom and OmniToad roms to see if it helped but would rather not have to go back to stock unless I need to.
I can live it with it but if anyone has a resolution it would be super awesome. Hopefully it's something simple that I messed up and not the phone itself!


are you having this issue on all above mentioned roms....i have seen this issue before on other devices and is a deep sleep issue...i know the only rom you may be able to fix this on is my CarbonRom and done so by changing min frequency up a notch...if that doesnt work go down a notch....all other roms besides carbon have this feature force locked as far as i know so you cant do it on those roms
