Default [Q] How to disable screen turning on when texts received?

Isn't there a way to stop the screen from turning on whenever texts are received by using a tool like Root Browser to edit a config file somewhere? I thought I remember reading that somewhere but now can't find the thread where I saw that (I searched this site and google in general).

Thanks.

You need root to do so, here is the thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2785118
The Wanam module in Xposed can also do this

My screen doesn't come on when I get texts. I swear that I set it up that way from the start but I'll be darned if I can find the setting for you now.
