    Just as the title says. If I get a notification of any kind, whether a text or email or pretty much anything, the screen remains on. I have to physically turn it off.

    Also has anyone noticed that the grid of icons remains of center when scrolling page to page? Also sometimes when you close an app.

    I have to say that all in all I'm not overly impressed with iOS7.

    iPhone 4 screen stays lit

    I had this same problem with my iPhone 4 after upgrading to iOS 7. It really sucks because if you get a text message or something while not near your phone, the backlight might stay on for hours, killing battery life!

    But, I FIXED IT! My Autolock was set to 1 minute when the problem was occurring (Settings > General > Autolock). I changed it to 2 minutes and waited with the screen lit. Sure enough after 2 minutes it went black. I then went back to those settings and changed it back to 1 minute. It now shuts off the screen after 1 minute.

    To test if it goes off after notifications, I sent myself a text through this link: https://web.vma.vzw.com/vtext/guest/Dashboard.do. My screen lit up when I received it, but it went off after 1 minute. :cool:

    Hope this helps.

    I am having this same issue. Screen will remain on after any type of notification and even after I pulg it in to charge, it shows battery percentage and then the screen remains on.

    Also, when I am on any application, even though I have my auto lock set for 2 minutes, it remains on till I press the top button to lock it.

    I think I have a bad setting somewhere and can not find it. I tried changing to 1 min auto lock and back, nothing happened. I restored my phone and used back up from computer, nothing. Restored my phone and used iCloud back up, nothing.

    I have to keep my phone on the charger or it will die ... so fustrating.
