    This started happening to me as well, the screen just stays on. So I turned off Smart Stay and now it times out just fine. Smart Stay is really cool but I've been using android phones for a couple years without it now so I don't really care. Try turning it off and see what happens. If it's already off, try changing your screen time out to different settings then back again, see if that resets it.

    Hi ..Thanks for the reply.,..but my issue seems to be little different...When the phone is not connected to charger or usb connecter,it times out correctly...but when you connect the charger,it lights up and just stays forever..I need to use the lock button to turn it off..As am using the flip cover,sometimes i forget to lock it..so it stays on and when i touch it after sometime,its boiling....so i dunno what might be wrong..everything is perfect and i have customised it day and night ..Factory reset sucks big time..:(..any suggestions....by the way i turned of motion and smart stay and all the extra feautures..but no luck:(

    Sounds like a setting in the debugging menu. There is an option to keep the screen when connected to a charging source. It's used to keep the screen on when people are flashing roms and trying to root their phones. I would check there to see if the option is checked.

    I was facing the same issue. I changed the settings as in turned on smart stay, change timeout time, auto screen brightness etc. exited the display settings Then I switched them all off and rebooted. My timeout started back.

    I think i figured it out. I had a drive link sideloaded. It seemed to be keeping the screen on.

    I thing you may find you have your phone set to "stay lit" this is an option where, while you are looking at the screen it will stay active, I had this problem and unchecked this option, now my battery lasts much longer too... Valent G.

    I had this very same problem and eventually found out that it was caused by an app called Notifier Pro. Once uninstalled, the problem was solved. What was really confusing is that despite the screen timeout on the app being set to the desired value, it used to default back to 30s every single time the screen was locked. Incredibly frustrating.
