    So in my car I have my iPhone plugged into a cable which charges it and plays music through my stereo. I have the CarTunes app which is what I use to play music in the car (obviously).

    Today I decided to give Hey Siri a go to send a text message. Worked fine, but then she wouldn't leave! The screen stayed on Siri instead of just sending the text and then going back to CarTunes. Had to press the Home button to return to the app. Not really 100% hands free.

    Same kinda thing happened at home. I plugged my phone in to charge and Hey Siri'd an alarm. Alarm set but then the screen stayed on for like a minute. Bit irritating.

    Solution: When plugged in with an app open, return to app 5 seconds after last command. When plugged in and screen locked, return to sleep 5 seconds after last command.

    Anyone else noticed/bothered by this?

    All you have to do is say 'Hey Siri' again so it is listening and then say goodbye. The screen will then turn off.

    I did not. Turns out that fixes both my problems. It would of course be that simple.

    Though what would be better is if I didn't have to "Hey Siri" before I could "Bye Siri".

    Thanks a lot, though! :D

    I figured out "Hey Siri Cancel" has the same effect yesterday.

    I have a problem where when i say "Bye", Siri exits, and then the lock screen stays on. It just doesn't close.
    I have to manually press the sleep/wake button which defeats the purpose of a hands free Siri.

    I keep saying "Bye Siri" but Siri doesn't shut down. What do I do?

    Are you doing "Hi Siri" before you say "Bye Siri"?

    Yes, nothing is working. Siri functions fine and does everything I tell her except going away when I say "bye"
    She does respond with "ok see you later" but it stays on my screen

    I've just tried it on iOS 9 PB3. I say "Bye Siri", she says "OK, see you later", then she goes away.

    ... Have you tried turning it off and on again?

    Yes, I have. I have even updated my software but saying bye or cancel to Siri doesn't make her go away.
    What should I do now?

    This doesn't go away until I press the home button.
