    Are you saying that the phone is completely turned off and an incoming SMS turns the power on and brings it to full awake?

    Just turns the screen on for a few seconds (comes onto the lockscreen)...and then the screen goes back off...

    I downloaded a 3rd party SMS to control the notification which allowed me to select an option "don't turn on screen" but I really wish this could be done without a 3rd party app...

    interesting because don't have that happen at all. But it could be something that has been checked in the settings.

    Workaround
    Found a quick fix to this that is way better than defaulting to another SMS app. Simply download "SMS pop up" from the play store, make sure its enabled, and under additional preferences untick "screen on pop up" and then under notification settings untick "enable pop up" (unless you want the pop up of course). You will have to untick the regular SMS app notifications under settings but its a fix that's working for me that still keeps the stock messaging app intact.
