    Got the phone today, so far I like it a lot however my screen is not dimming. I have it set to time out at 30 seconds. Any ideas? I'll try a battery pull

    Battery pull seemed to fix it for now

    Can you think of any apps that you started running before the issue? kill all your apps, see if it works again.

    Some apps have the ability to keep your phone awake. A poorly built one might be doing so even when you think it's closed.

    I figured out what app was causing it, swype. I've installed it and deleted it a few times and that is the one. Sucks because I love swype and now I can't use it.
