    Since yesterday my screen constantly wakes up. When I press the powerbutton to standby the screen, after about a second the screen wakes again and the screenlight keeps flashing. Light turns full, after 5 seconds the screen light dims and after 5 seconds the screen light turns full again.

    Anybody seen this before?

    Started throwing with my phone already, so please help!

    Is your phone brand new?

    Did you install any recent apps? Try uninstalling them and see if your problem is resolved.

    I am sure you've checked Menu > Settings > Display and theres nothing there right?

    I've narrowed this down to a setting in Juice Defender. Had it set to prevent lock when connected to a specific WiFi network (home). Disabling that specific setting stopped it happening.

    Others have reported the bug fix is WiFi related and a fix is to manually disable WiFi before locking the screen.

    Happened to me after using Soundhound. Restarted it and had no problems afterwards.
