I have an HTC EVO and I can be sitting around doing nothing, when all of a sudden the screen comes on and stays on. I try to turn it off, but it keeps turning back on - sometimes after a second, sometimes after a few minutes. If I just leave it, it will not turn off by itself, as it would if I manually turned it on but didn't enter the password. This is killing my already horrendous battery life!
I have killed almost all background processes except some of the ones by HTC that looked important.
I have also turned off application refresh, wifi, blue tooth, tried rebooting ... even put it into Airplane mode. Arghhh! Nothing helps!
I thought I hit pay dirt last week - I replaced the factory 1500mAh battery with a 3500mAh for obvious reasons. For a few days the auto-turn-on seemed to be cured but now it has started happening again.
Any ideas how I can get this paper weight to be more obedient?
