    This has been asked a few times and I dont think there was ever an answer.

    Mine has never done this. It may be a bug, who knows? Its certainly not a setting. Might be worth having a look in those other threads to see if anyone else resolved this issue.

    @akitasumo yes i'am using the stock sms app, when i receive a new sms my screen wakesup for a second. which i don't want.

    i'am also using light flow app to change colors of led when on notifications. i don't know which app is causing this.

    Ahh Ok I was going to suggest if you were rooted that it might have been part of your rom and there could have been a flashable rosie to change it. Sorry! :)
