2. My phone turns off when i'm sleeping.

Can someone please tell me whats going on with it.
For problem number one: Have you adjusted the screen turn off timer under display? Or activated Smart Stay? The default time-out for the screen is 30 seconds. Which can be quite short if you're not actively touching the screen.

For problem number two: Like...all the way off? Even with your battery with enough charge to last over night?

I would recommend a factory reset and install only your absolutely necessary apps. If the problem still occurs, you may have a defective unit and I recommend you get it replaced.
