Confused about idle screen lock

  • When i have idle lock set to never, it only seems to work when the phone is already locked

    For eg, when the phone is locked but screen on, the screen stays on permanently, regardlessof being unplugged - i have tried every timeout value available in screen lock settings

    But when installing something like Libertine, i have to constantly tap the screen to avoid it switcing off and locking, even if the above is set to Never

    Wondering if there is a setting i am missing, for screen idle, in addition to the security lock idle timeout?

  • As I only use my device for testing, I always have it set to never. I've never seen anything like what you're suggesting happens.

    The idle timeout is unrelated to whether the screen is locked or not, or as to what apps are running, or installed.
