    Anyone have an issue with their Captivate Display turning on by itself?

    Lately my Cappy will turn itself on and stay on. For example, I have my phone on my desk, and the phone display will turn on, and stay on. No message, phone call, text or meeting reminder is received.

    Any Ideas?

    check the apps that are runing in the background like facebook, twitter,email and messages many of this can turn on the screen to let you know about that something is happening.

    Mine does it sometimes at home when it loses connection to my P.O.S. router and then immediately reconnects. Took me a while to figure out why my screen would occasionally turn on... The facebook sync thing makes sense, but my refresh interval is set to hourly and my screen definitely doesn't wake up on its own that often. Just every once in a while.
