Why can't I put my phone to sleep?

Sam from Costa Mesa, CA
Pixel 3

Sam has a Pixel 3 mobile phone that constantly keeps the screen on when he puts it in its holster. How can he stop that? Leo says that you can configure the Pixel in the settings to mitigate. You can create a lock gesture, for instance, or press the on/off button briefly to put it to sleep.
