So, I was able to isolate the problem somehow. It is definitely related to using the S-Pen. If I just use the tablet without the pen everything works fine and no issue of restarting when putting the tablet to sleep. However, as soon as I do just one little thing with the S-Pen (it is enough that it shows the pointer and recognizes the S-Pen without even touching the display), the next time the tablet is put to sleep, LineageOS somehow crashes and restarts.I installed LineageOS 20 TD on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S6. Everything works fine besides two issues:
Does anyone know how to approach these issues? The auto-brightness is not such a big deal, whereas the restarting problem is more severe.
- There is no toggle in settings to switch on auto-brightness.
- Often, but not always, when switching the tablet to standby mode (either by auto-standby, or by pressing the power button once), LineageOS seems to be restarting. To be specific, the LineageOS logo shows up and I have to reenter the code to unlock. It seems to me that it is related to having apps open while locking.
I am happy to provide any logs or additional information if necessary!
I am thankful for any tips on how to solve this issue since the S-Pen is indeed a core feature of the tablet for me!
I am happy to provide any more details to figure out whats the problem, be it logs or anything else.
@AndyYan would it be possible for you to have a look at this?
EDIT: S-Pen issue disappeared with March update!
