After update to my display timeout seems to be stuck at around 6 seconds. Setting it to 15 or 30 seconds doesnt help. Workaround please...

Display timeout is always 5 seconds when you are in lock screen. The timeout works only when you are outside of lockscreen.

You sure you are not looking at the lock screen while measuring this timeout?

Works fine here.

My jolla has 5 second screen dark timeout everywhere now. Highly irritating.

Does it persist also after reboot?

Now the 5 second timeout is gone, without reboot. I have persistent journal logs available if there's something I could check.

it would be valuable to know what's happened.

journalctl -ba > mylogs.logs

And send them to info@jolla.com saying it is related to this post. Please be aware that there might be some data in the logs you don't want to share with Jolla. If that is the case please don't send them.

@stezz I am experiencing the same thing yesterday and today (can't say for sure if it happened before). I am not on the lock screen when this happens. What is strange: after it happens and I double tap to wake the phone is back to the screen it was before (e.g. app or home screen) and not to the lock screen.
