Are you on TouchWiz 4.4.2, or AOSP/CM? If AOSP, is it a 4.4.2 or 4 4.3 ROM? What kernel? Do you use an app to change VPN, etc settings? Do you have separate screen off settings?
Try a stock kernel, a custom kernel the way it comes, or wiping or uninstall the app you use to change the CPU settings.
Sent from my Sprint Samsung Galaxy SIII on TouchWiz 4.4.2 with Wicked X v6.5, Ktoonsez' latest kernel and the latest Philz Touch Recovery.
