    I though that the update today would fix it but no luck. It's stock, not custom and I have that annoying screen motion thing turned off. Any ideas?

    Try blowing into the earpiece. Perhaps a piece of dust is stuck above the proximity sensor (more common issue than you might think).

    Wow, never thought that would cause a problem. Good to know. (Sometimes its the simplest thing that solves a big problem.)

    Or it could be that there is some app in the background that is turning it on. I've heard of it before. I had it happen with my old Mez.

    Makes sense. Blew into the earpiece and so far it's all good. I'll see how it goes throughout the day.

    Didn't work. :( It just turned on. No app is turning it on either.

    It sucks, but you could always try a Factory Reset to ensure it's not something wonky on an install or if it's a hardware related problem.

    That would be high on my suspect list as well. That sort of behaviour can really drain a battery.
