I just bought this Galaxy Tab 10.1 with Android 3.2 and while I love it, one thing drives me nuts - every time I turn the screen off using power button, the screen comes back on in a minute or so. I went through all display settings and haven't found anything relevant.

Any ideas how to stop that madness?

  • If the screen automatically switches on without the user having intiated this, it looks to me like some app requested a specific WakeLock (SCREEN_DIM_WAKE_LOCK, SCREEN_BRIGHT_WAKE_LOCK, or FULL_WAKE_LOCK, see PowerManager API). Please check if How to deal with (orphaned) WakeLocks? might help you. – Izzy Mar 23 '13 at 17:05
  • It looks like ambient display is the cause of this have you checked related settings – xavier_fakerat May 5 '17 at 19:13
