Are you covering up the proximity sensor? It should be near the speaker.
Good afternoon! Congratulations on your first smart phone! I would love to offer my assistance to ensure your experience is an enjoyable one. Ann154 asks a great question(thank you!). Is there a case, holster, etc covering up the proximity sensor? Even screen protectors have been know to degrade the ability of the sensor. If you determine that nothing is obstructing the sensor, I recommend a 'Hard Reset' to the device in order to return the phone to factory settings. It may be necessary, after the reset, to go over options to have the device replace either under the 14-day exchange period or under Motorola's warranty.
Please reply back so I and the community can assist further.

Mine does the same thing. Screen wont stay on more than a few seconds. I'm also not finding any info on charging the phone. I THINK I have it figured out as I have the USB end plugged into the phone & that plugged into the power connector that plugs into the wall. However, even though I have it plugged up now, it still says on screen "Connect to charger" and the battery strength screen isnt moving to indicate that the phone is charging.
Check your battery saver setting in the menu they could be what is causing the screen not to stay on.
Are you sure you are sliding screen to on position after you hit power button to light up screen? If not the phone will shut back off after just a few seconds
Unlike the Droid X there is No Battery Saver to do the Adjustments on as they went to Smart Actions to Do the Battery Saving an many other things but as for Screen Time out you can still Adjust it as you could on the X Go to Settings > Display > then Screen Time Out you have 15 sec. , 30 sec. 1 min, 2 min., 10min., 30 min., an Never Time out. An you can also set you screen to not Animate witch it won't close in the Center as it did when you got it New. I also have my Brightness at about 5 or 10% an Auto Brightness is Unchecked.

Try going to the Settings / Display / Screen Timeout Option and try 30 seconds in the settings. Also I have experianced this with the Profile Schelduler installed because it had this option....
Another thing if you have Widget Locker installed there is a option in that app as well,
- Open Windget Locker
- Screen Timeout
- Screen Timeout again
Widget Locker Lockscreen App: Wildman is this app by TeslaCoil Software an is $2.99 Just checking.
