    Screen Stays On

    I bought a Samsung Galaxy Y recently, my introduction to the smartphone world. As usual the screen goes off after a few seconds. However, occasionally I look at it when I'm not actively using it and the screen is not turning itself off. If I turn the phone off and then on again it resolves the issue. Does anyone have an idea as to why it stays on in the first place? Thanks.

    Try this: settings/display/screen timeout

    You should have five or six choices of how long you want the screen to stay live, just choose the time that works best for you.
