Screen Automatically Turns On & Off

For ads: Lookout's and TrustGo's ad detectors are nice; I uninstall anything "pushy" or "leaky".

Otherwise, some more info would help, i.e. what is your timeout, face stay thing setting, what is on the screen when it happens/before it happens...

Thanks for the info on the detector apps, will check them out.

I uninstalled Music Download Paradise Lite and Barcode Scanner yesterday, along with turning off Network notification. Smart Face Stay setting is off, as is all motion options. Since then, it hasn't turned on.

I do have a secure email app (Good Technology) for my work installed on my phone, that might be sending calendar notifications (it can't be for emails as my mobile data is always off)
