I have a new Nexus 6 which immediately updated to Lollipop. When in standby mode the screen turns on randomly and displays the clock. This has been going on since I got it 24 hours ago.

Any thoughts or tips to fix this issue?

    It might be daydreaming. Did the screen turn on when you charge or dock the phone? – Andrew T. Nov 28 '14 at 4:16
  • Sorry for the delayed response. No, it is just sitting still. No charging. – philwinkle Nov 29 '14 at 1:02
  • I turned off daydreaming. Still happenjng. Very strange. – philwinkle Nov 29 '14 at 1:09
  • I had also this problem. but I found a solution with easy way. did you check for wakeup triggers in Wakelock Detector? the app requires root. – user159759 Apr 6 '16 at 6:20

After having switched off the Ambient display the problem has stopped for me. Hope this helps.

Settings > Display > Ambient display (Wake screen when you pick up device or receive notifications)


You can try by going to Developer options and then disable the Stay awakecheck-box. ("Screen will never sleep while charging")
