My Nexus 4 runs Android 4.4 and is set to use the standard "Clock" daydream while charging. It has no screen lock. This works fine so far.

I would expect the screen to wake up when I touch the daydreaming screen.

Sometimes the screen turns off when I touch it, rather than waking up.

There might be a time element because this seems to happen when I have not touched the phone for many minutes, but it seems to work OK if it had only been daydreaming a few minutes. AC or USB charging does not seem to make any difference.

→ Why does the screen turn off instead of waking up, and how can I "fix" that?

  • This issue still occurs on Lollipop. However, I haven't tested if it's daydream-dependent or not. – Andrew T. Apr 30 '15 at 23:25

I had this problem some time ago. It went away after i flashed kitkat as i didn'twant to wait for OTA update.

Try rebooting or write what you already did to try solve the problem

  • I reboot regularly; that doesn't seem to be a solution. – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Feb 6 '14 at 10:26
  • Nope, even after I flashed Lollipop, the problem still persists (or it became worse, actually) – Andrew T. Dec 8 '14 at 16:57
