Hi all. I just flashed this ROM and all works fine, except that the phone turns off by itself after a while. Is that something I could fix?

My phone actually turns off when the screen sleep.
What steps do I need to follow to flash correctly and don't lose my IMEI?
This happens since I updated my device in September 5 (security patch)

>What is the purpose of the device specific "fw" in the installation instructions ?
>This was not required in the previous versions of pixelplusui for merlin. I don't want to download and flash just any random FirmWare (fw) from the internet.
>Are there any explanations of why the fw is needed from this update onwards ?
>Where did this "fw " originate from ? Did the device maintainer Boi_Box make or extract them from xiaomi's official package ?
>Also Why is there is a warning for the imei being wiped while flashing ?
>Was this risk always there while flashing custom roms, or is this specific to this rom only ?
>There are so many questions I want answers to. Someone knowlegeable enough Please clear my doubts.

    • Download the latest build
    • Take IMEI-Backup(don't complain if you don't take backup and lose imei)(also store backup on pc or somewhere safe)
    • Flash your Device Respective FW From HERE
    • Reboot To Recovery
    • wipe Dalvik/Art, Cache, Format Data --> yes
