Kernel settings probably or sensor problem.

But you better try another compatible with your ROM kernel or search how to edit it's settings.

I used several different roms and this is always the case.

The proximity and light sensor are different. The intensity sensor sure has more sensitivity at night, but the proximity sensor has its own IR. It will work just well in both day and night.
If you have this problem on all ROMs, you might have a hardware issue. Try updating your firmware.

Happy to help.

I'm running 3.33 firmware and this happens on all roms, not sure why but light and proximity stop working at same time and they both start working when room is dark.
