Prevent screen from waking with notifications!?

Galaxy S20+ 5G: I'm at wits end with this! I drive predominantly at night and every freaking time I get a message, my screen turns on while driving. I'm in several group chats and the screen is lighting up every 5 seconds when the group gets chatty. Not only does this attract attention from the police, it's also a dangerous distraction! I DO NOT want the screen to turn on with notifications. All I want is the edge lighting and a brief desscription of the message. Short of disabling notifications altogether, I've tried every "solution" that I could find on line and not a single one prevents the screen from waking up when a notification is received. Please help me with this! Thank you!

I am curious as well. My screen is on a ridiculous amount of time just from waking to let me know something insignificant happened.

This isn't an option, as I need it to be on all the time. Because I'll forget to do it before getting into the truck and it's too much navigating to get to that setting while driving. Besides, I need to be notified of messages, I just don't want a bright sudden light in my face.

Messages - settings - notifications - new messages - show pop enable 

This worked for me to disable the annoying screen wake up.

Let me know if it works for you. Screenshot_20210110-214058_Settings.jpg

issue with this is that now when a person texts and the screen is on it shows a pop-up of what they texted.  why is there the option to not show details in the lock screen but no option to not show details in a pop-up?  I want the edge lighting to turn on when I get a text, not for the screen to wake up, and when the phone is on I also want the edge lighting, but I want it to just say "new message" instead of giving me the details of the message (what if someone is looking over my shoulder at my phone at something i'm showing them and I get a private message i don't want being seen by them??)... but this is now not an option no matter how many settings I tweak.  it's either have the screen wake up, but have privacy when the screen is on.. or have the edge lighting work with the phone off and have a detailed message pop-up when the screen is on......... so annoying!
