    I've had my sgs3 for almost a month and three things i don't understand happened, maybe you can identify.
    1. Yesterday my phone wouldn't sleep. I manually pressed it to sleep and when i activated the screen again, it wouldn't go to sleep. I identified the culprit in settings\display. It was trying to read my face bc the phone was next to me. I've never had that setting checked, nor have messed with the display in weeks. Why did it suddenly change?

    2. Moments ago, a peach-ish colored LED came on and stayed on until i activated the phone. The only messages i had were my usual emails and Google+. All of which never produced that led before. Any idea?

    3. Eye icon in notification bar - i spot it every now and then, what is it?

    Thanks for any insight

    The eye eyecon is your phone trying to make sure it keeps the phone screen on due to the setting you found activated in your first question.

    You have set your screen time out to say 30 seconds.
    After that 30 seconds, the eye will pop up to detect your eyes (to detect if you are looking at the screen or not).
    If you are looking at the screen, the eye will disappear and then the 30 second count will restart.....this will repeat.

    If you are not looking at the screen or it doesn't detect your eyes, it will cause your screen to time out.

    Not sure what the peach colored led represents, never had that color pop up.

    As for the eyecon icon......I haven't bothered to activate that feature. Never really understood a need for this one. If my screen is on I'm using the phone, so its not going to time out anyways, whether you're watching a video, playing a game or on the forums... Set at 2 minutes, I've never had the screen time out on me, even if I'm reading a long article on the web, I'll have touched the screen within that timeframe to scroll down a page, click a link etc. When I'm done I'll hit the power button to put it to sleep so 2 minutes seems to be the optimal time for me personally.
