    Hi all, I quite new with WP, just realise that the screen is on everytime I got new message, is there anyway to disable this?
    Kind of waste of battery if the screen keeps waking up when in pocket. I prefer to press the button to see if there is any message received.

    Thanks in advance

    I believe there is no direct way to do that, but you can go inside individual apps and turn notifications off. However, you must note that it will not drain your battery significantly. (given you're not getting a notification every 30 seconds) I would suggest turning your volume down until you get 8.1 when you will have Quiet Hours.

    Place your phone face down or use some paper to cover the proximity sensor.

    When you take out your phone after it beeps, you are uncovering the proximity sensor. So, turn down the volume, cover the sensor, and you won't be bothered.

    Note: Flip to Silence is a setting that must be turned on in Audio/Enhancements

    Edit: Flip to Silence requires headphones.

    Flip to silence does not require headphones.

    Still should be an option to turn it off, nothing like having your phone sitting on a table and a text comes up for all to read.

    On 8.1 you can mute a private thread and then unmute when it is safe again.

    Thanks for all replies.
    First of all, I don't mind at all about the sound notification, I just want the screen to stay off.
    The main problem is when my whatsapp group are active, the screen keep turning on everytime someone send msg.
    And I agree with DaT, for privacy reason.
    I hope someday we have option for this.
