Is anybody else having this problem and what is the solution? 

Did you try to adjust display timeout setting using Settings -> Screen?
I did and got the same situation as you did.
I solved that to manually editing the file /.config/powermanagementprofilesrc
It seems that the Screen settings app inserted there [BrightnessControl] value 0.5, which is not 50 % but 0.5 in a scale of hundred or 0.5% Big Grin. Also needed to edit the screen timeout values to reasonable ones.
how do you open /.config/powermanagementprofilesrc ? can I do it on the phone itself? or do I need to plug it into the dock? I found the .config folder, but it is greyed out and says "nothing here" when I open it. do I need to use terminal and sudo commands?
