Default bluetooth audio cutting out when screen sleeps/phone locked.

This just started today, does it with Roms and stock (safestrap)

Any audio program, pandora, iheart, music player works fine on in my car or when linked to my motorcycle helmet.. until the screen sleeps, then the audio cuts in and out every few seconds.

I know there is a known android issue with bluetooth, but this ONLY happens when the phone is locked/screen off.. with the screen on its perfect...

Any ideas?

bump. I have the same issue. Using CM 10.2 on the N7100. Everything works super when the phone is not locked, otherwise sound cuts every other second. My Tab 2 running CM9 works great even when locked.

This used to happen whenever I installed a custom rom but never on the stock roms.

Just moved from a Galaxy S3 to an S4, and I am seeing this issue, where I had no issue on the S3. It's as if the bluetooth radio goes into some low power mode. If I move the phone closer to the headset, reception improves. I was thinking I needed to update the radio in this phone, but reading your responses, that does not seem to be the issue.
