Changes
Added a new choice for the Screen toggle policy setting.
If selected, it will turn data / Wi-Fi ON when the screen is unlocked or 5s after screen is turned ON. So if screen unlock cannot be detected data / Wi-Fi would come back on anyway, but they wouldn't be turned ON when the user just turns screen ON quickly to watch the time.
