    Sitting watching tv at night when my One lights up for about 10 secs and then dark screen this repeats 5 or 6 times. This happens periodically throughout the evening, even happened during sleep time with phone beside bed. Any ideas out there or am I missing something, cheers.

    could be anything.

    help by answering a few questions:

    are you rooted?

    what carrier?

    did this start when you installed any apps? uninstalled any apps?

    does it make sounds or just lights up?

    when it does light up, are there any error messages? any message?

    clearly a restart (holding the power off button beyond 10 seconds and letting it auto shutdown/restart on its own) did not do any help?

    does it happen on cellular as well as wifi?

    again could be anything, but answering those questions can rule out some things...

    Fair point mod, I am with 3 in the UK, when the phone lights up there is no sound I don't have any messages emails or notifications, not connected to WiFi or data. The phone is not rooted, I wouldn't have a clue how to do it and I haven't recently installed anything, a bit of a mystery.

    Had phone 3 weeks only really noticed it a fee days ago.

    Have you got any updates to install?

    Try putting the phone in Safe Mode too as that will disable all your apps, so if it happens then it won't be an app causing it.

    do a hard reboot.. wont reset your phone.. hold the power button down for 10 seconds, and keep holding it till the screen shuts off.. let off the power button.. and it will reboot on its own..

    Had that occur when I hadn't closed a game completely, think out was fetching ad spam. I closed everything and haven't had the problem since. Curious, I've never seen it happen on any of my other android toys.

    Try installing Better Battery stats and see if you notice any service that has a high wake-lock time. Something that maybe you don't use often but seems to be chewing up more than normal resources.

    I know one reason why the phone wakes up. Probably not applicable to your issue. I had my One plugged into the charger in my truck. When I started up my truck the phone woke up because I'm going to assume it detected voltage from the charger turning on.

    Found the issue, it was an app that hadn't closed down properly so thanks for all your replies.
