Welcome to the Forums!

After a time-out period, it should remain off unless moved: coming out of a pocket, turned over, etc. THEN only the pixels required for the S-view notifications will come on. AMOLED screens have no backlight: so each pixel is separately powered. If the phone is only turning on those few pixels required for the notifications, that saves battery power.

That's how I understand it, anyway
