Forgive me if this was answered somewhere else, but I have not been able to find any information anywhere. I am not sure if my search terms are weak or what.

Okay, here is my question. How do I disable the auto-screen off feature? Meaning, when I hold the One in my hand and flick my wrist downward, the screen turns off by itself. I have looked into every setting on the phone but can not find any switch for it.

I am running OneDriod rom (cyanogenMod). I am unsure if the rom is causing this, as I remember it doing the same thing with stock.

Again, if this was answered elsewhere, feel free to delete/lock this thread. I was hesitant to even create this thread.

Thanks for the reply. I will be honest and say I have no idea if that is what it is. I have seen no reference to it on my phone or in any settings, etc. Though it seems my phone only turns off when I flick my wrist (or any other slight jerking action). However, it does not wake the phone up with a flick, it just turns the screen off. It is super annoying and I can not find the switch to turn it off.

Thanks, that tool seems to be doing the trick. I can not believe this was so hard to figure out. I am normally pretty good at these sorts of things. Thanks again!
