    OK first off, forgive me as I am posting this for my wife, who is at work.

    Her iPhone will not go to sleep after periods of inactivity. I typically put my to sleep with the sleep/wake button, but she's new to the iPhone and just wants it to go to sleep after a minute of two of not using it.

    Auto lock is set at 1 minute. Auto brightness is on. I can't seem to think I what else it could be. My phone does it after what seems like no time.

    Any suggestions? Her battery life has been awful as a result of the screen always being on.

    it could be an app. I know my Dad has one for work and whatever app they have to have running keeps his phone awake at all times.

    Do you have assistiveTouch turn on?
    There's reported cases where iPhone screen won't turn off when it's on.

    Same problem – this thing exactly solved the trouble: I used assistive touch to decrease loads on home button when had to switch between apps a lot. As soon as I turn it on - the phone won't go to sleep ever even when I turn it off. Thank you! After soft reset the phone works normally unless you turn assistive on again, so I won't.
