Two minute delay when device screen power/display is Off/Locked

I'm a beginner. My device is TCL A3 and is sold by Tracfone. It runs Android 11.

When I write a set of Profiles and Tasks to manage my screen power automatically when I rotate the device, it works fine when rotating the device quickly. But when I leave the display in Off/Lock/Sleep mode for more than just a few seconds, the device stays off after I rotate the device (to turn it on) for 2 minutes.

I have enabled the options required so that Tasker runs when the display is off.

The fact that the delay is always 120 seconds suggests that there is an app-checking timeout somewhere that I've got set to that amount, but I can't find it. The only Tasker Profile condition is on the sensor Orientation state.

Perhaps it is relevant that I have all cell phone processes disabled, as I don't use this device as a phone.
