Hi
As soon as my phone screen locks, i am unable to copy or move any more files to the phone ( i can still see the phone in My Computer).
If i disconnect the phone & plug it back in, i am able again to copy files from the PC.

Anyone have any ideas / help ??

Thanks

Steve

Already on High Performance - just checked to make sure - yep - USB suspend turned off.

Is this problem the norm for when the screen turns off ?

Thank you for your reply - any other ideas

Pull down the status bar and it should say: connected as a media device or camera, choose PTP (media device).

Which lockscreen security setting are you using?

By default, any setting other than Swipe disables the USB connection when the screen is locked for obvious security reasons.

You can try enabling 'Stay Awake' under developer options, this keeps the screen on whilst "charging". Or if security isn't an issue, use the Swipe to unlock security mode.
