Sony XA2 Ultra "Android is starting" AFTER unlock

'm not sure if this is the best place to ask this, but I have a problem with my Sony XA2 Ultra. Sometimes, when it gets low on storage space (and I need to clear the cache to free up space) my phone will restart itself. Normally, this isnt too big of a deal, except for when it restarts when I sleep. The odd thing about my phone is that it makes me wait until I put in my pin and unlock my phone, THEN it loads android and the apps. It says "Android is starting" but only after I unlock. This means my alarms wont go off until I unlock my phone, which I cant do because I'm asleep.


I was wondering if there was a way to make it act like normal Androids, where after booting up, itll load all of the apps it needs from start up rather than requiring me to unlock the phone. Every other android device I've owned functioned like that, and my XA2 Ultra is, so far, the only one different.


Is there a way to fix this? Or do I need to just flash a different OS on to my phone that DOESNT make me wait to unlock my phone to load my alarm apps?
