Default Screen turns on Mommetarily

When the screen is off my S3 screen turns on for maybe a second or less every once in a while. I think this has only been happening recently and could possibly linked to JB upgrade or maybe an app that I have installed.

Anyone have a resolution?

It does not appear to have anything to do with the receipt of email.

Default Re: Screen turns on Mommetarily

pretty sure my problem was caused by doggcatcher. There's an option that's defaulted to keep the screen on when it's downloading.
