Hi after updating to iOS 11.2 i noticed that sometimes the screen comes on and doesn't turn off by itself. It happens both when it is plugged in or not and doesn't seem to be related to notification.

I have tried rebooting, turning off the attention aware feature, changing the auto lock timer but to no avail. The only way is to press the side button to manually turn off the screen.

Anyone else having this issue or knows how to fix it? Thanks!

Had the same issue, hard reset was my fix:
1. Volume up
2. Volume down
3. Hold power button until screen turns black and Apple logo shows.
