Waking up screen from a timeout frustrationGeneral

    I have this frustrating problem. I have my screen timeout at 30s. So say when I'm reading a webpage and after 30s of non activity the screen turns off on me while I'm reading. During this immediate moment the phone is not yet locked. I quickly turn back on the screen by pressing the home button to continue my reading. The screen turns on but it also returns to the home screen! I wish it would stay at my last screen whenever I wake up the display again! Try it and you will know what I am talking about. So when it goes to homescreen I have to open the browser once again etc. On the iphone this is not the case. Or is there another method to turn on the screen again?

    The phone is doing exactly what you told it to do. You hit the home button it took you home.
    Hit the power button....yep.....on the side.....yea, right there. :D
    Power button powers the screen back on .

    If you go to settings>lock screen>lock automatically and set it to say 10 minutes, for the 1st ten mins after a time out screen off (not a forced screen off) the home button will restore the app you were in rather than the home screen.
