Exclamation Samsung Galaxy S Advance Automatic Screen Wake up

Hi,

I have a strange problem on my new "Samsung Galaxy S Advance" phone.
It lights up or wakes up for no reason, I didn't touch anything or pressed Home or power button...The screen just wakes up automatically and goes off.

It does that for 4-5 times and it becomes normal again....and then after sometime, it does the same thing.

Here is what I have tried -
1) I looked into Task Manager and freed some memory
2) I saw in some forums that AccuWeather app creates this problem, I dumped the app and Forcefully stopped the process.
3) Restarted the phone several times.

All of these didnt work.

Please help me out if anyone can. Even though it doesnt kill the battery but it is still annoying.

Thanks in Advance,
Adi

Try the app BetterBatteryStats, it will tell you what is causing partial wakeups and kernal wakeups. I guess whatever is high is one of those lists is probably the culprit!
