Solution for fingerprint scanner issue

I recently found out how to fix the fingerprint scanner issue (sometimes it doesn't read it correctly from sleep mode). Just turn off the fingerprint swipe feature in the settings. That's it! Hope I helped some people out there.

Interesting: I've never met or heard of this issue. And I use the fingerprint swipe feature regularly, and never touch the power button, always use the FP reader to wake and open the phone (many dozens of times a day). Must only be some devices.

Same here. I use the fingerprint scanner exclusively and never had a problem.
