Hi All,
I have this problem with my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Google couldn't help me with that. The thing is when it's in idle state it keeps turn on and off periodically the screen. Doing it every 5-10 minutes probably, usually 5 times in a row - turn on/off, turn on/off and 5 times like this.
I tried to unload apps, rebooting it.. nothing seems to help. Wi-fi, BT and GPS are all off.
Please help how to solve this.
Thanks!
Galaxy Tab 8.9

Leaving it off completely over night will help.......but you may need to try a "Factory Reset" for a satisfactory solution.....

Sorry, didn't get. How leaving it off completely should help? Do you know the reason of this behavior?

If it's off overnight, it's not draining your battery in that period....

No idea....could be an App....Try a "Factory Reset"....

as stated above, it could be the settings in a downloaded app you added, check the permissions on all the apps you have downloaded,
if nothing shows up, a Factory Reset without the "Automatic Restore"may cure it :- http://www.thegalaxy...dpost__p__28971
failing that, check your Settings, Wireless & Network, Wi-Fi Settings, Menu, Advanced, Wi-Fi sleep policy, try the different options

dicasaci, I was unable to single out what's causing it, but what i did is just to gave it wi-fi internet for some time and it was fine after that, stopped doing it. So it helped.
Apparently, something is trying to connect to the Internet every n-minutes...
