    I haven't read about this on this forum so I guess its not a widespread issue but, after upgrading to iOS 7.1, when the phone is locked and I receive a SMS, the phone doesn't goto sleep by itself. I need to hit the power button to put it to sleep.

    This is on the iPhone 5S..

    Anyone else having this and if anyone had resolved this ? I have done a upgrade and not a clean re-install of the 7.1 software.

    Did you by chance check in Settings if your auto-lock is set to "never"?

    sorry, forgot to mention, yes I had checked the sleep option. Its at 1 min.

    However, if the phone is in locked status, it usually used to just brigten up and sleep after few seconds...that;s not happening now.

    Just tested this on my 5s and mine goes to sleep about 10 seconds after the SMS has been received - like before.

    Try holding the home and sleep button until you see the apple logo.
