Using phone locate or remote camera causes screen to stay dimly lit

As the title says, when I use the phone locate or the remote camera function it causes the screen to light up and remain lit (only dim as if brightness is set very low) and it stays this way until I physically unlock the phone and re-lock it - even when I have signed out of AirDroid.

In itself it's not really a massive problem on a day to day basis, however if I were to lose or have my phone stolen I can see it becoming a big issue as:
1) the battery is going to drain much faster than if the screen was not lit at all - which reduces the time available from initial location to actually recovering the handset before the battery dies.
2) is going to be noticeable to a thief.

I have checked that the app is not set to keep screen on.

My handset is a Samsung Galaxy W (GT i8150) and is running JellyBean 4.1.2 (Cyanogenmod 10)

I can put up with it in the short term as I'd rather have the functions available than not at all, but a fix would be superb.

Cheers for a wicked app AirDroid bods :)
