My handset was again able to go to sleep after the set 15 seconds, but then that "Unfortunately, Google Play Services has stopped" error started popping up every 3 seconds in an endless loop. They're both on again, and I assume my phone will again have insomnia until whatever is wrong with the last update gets fixed.
Okay, that means that each time you play around any app using those services, it s going to require your device to be awake and/or keep the device awake.
For some time I have used the Privacy Guard to make a restriction for this behavior i.e.
I've experienced this problem also and I found out the cause of it.
So when you access any Google stuff the Google Play Services are used right.
to stop the apps from keeping my phone awake, even though it's locked/asleep.
So I went to the Privacy Guard and set the setting to "Ask every time" and what do you know, it started popping like crazy. If you reinstall the update it may stop working again.
Solution 5 – This goes without saying, but may be a simple reboot of your Android phone/tablet could fix the problem.
Solution 6 – I hate to say this, but in the end, you might just want to install a custom ROM that is stable with no bugs.
Scroll to All apps and then scroll down to “Google Services Framework” app. May be your Wi Fi network is blocking any of the IP addresses that Google use.
Open the app details and tap on the “Force stop” button. You can also try switching the Wi Fi on or off on your phone — same with mobile data.
Maddening, but I can say from experience that that looping error is far worse than having to manually turn off the screen! Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site (the association bonus does not count).
