Question Display time-out resetting and icon disappearing

I have an international S3 on 3UK running 4.1.2

I have experienced the odd restart - normally when copy/pasting large amounts of text in chrome.

Anyway, 2 things are puzzling me.

On a restart I lose 1 of the apps at the bottom of the screen. It is currently Messaging, but it doesn't seem to matter what app I put there or in what position, a restart removes it and just leaves Phone Contacts Gmail and Apps.

This is beginning to get annoying.

The other issue is screen time-out. I normally have it set to 15 or 30 seconds. When plugged in it shows () which I presume means always on.

If the phone resets while plugged in, then for some reason it defaults to 10 minutes! This os annoying as it is killing my battery.

I am considering a factory reset if there are no other options - BUT if I do a FR, will I lose my Angry Birds progress?

I don't currently know of any app that works on a non rooted phone to back up AB. Is there any otherway, like connecting to the PC?

I'm not really sure what else to suggest other than a factory reset. There is an app you can use which lets you backup apps and data without rooting so a reset may not be too much of a problem

Default Re: Display time-out resetting and icon disappearing

I had the opposite problem lol. I like the phone set at 10mins but it kept defaulting to 30secs.. very annoying.
Since flashing a very samsung based custom rom, its been fine so im guessing it was the factory reset involved that cured it. It should fix the dock bug too mate
For a UK prepay sim with unlimited data, unlimited text, 250mins for 12p/m, no contract, no catch (runs on o2 network)
