    The phone is one day old. Whenever I recieve a text... I get the notification in the top left-hand corner... and the display will stay up until I press the sleep again. It will fade out in any other circumstance... but whenever I get a text, the screen stays lit until I do something! The phone is brand new. I have only installed a live wallpaper. And the delay IS set to 15 seconds. The delay works on everything but that screen. It wastes so much battery in my pocket when I get a text and don't check it as the screen stays lit.

    Any help?

    I haven't heard of this before, but just because I haven't heard of it doesn't mean anything!

    The first thing I'd do is uninstall that wallpaper for now and see if the problem persists. I trust you've checked the settings in Messaging (though I didn't see anything that seems to relate to the problem).

    Would you consider using a 3rd party SMS app to see if that performs better? Here are two good ones that most seem to prefer over stock:

    Handcent SMS - Android app on AppBrain

    chompSMS - Android app on AppBrain
