Finger print sensor is not working when my screen is locked. Need to wake phones screen and then sensor gets activated.

    If you go to Settings - Security & Lock Screen - Fingerprint

    Tap on where it says: Unlock device (tap on the text, not on where you enable fingerprint)

    Ensure you have Screen off unlock enabled.

    Or if you want to enable fingerprint when you pick up phone, press on pick up phone to show indicator.

    This will allow you to unlock the phone using fingerprint, but after a number of second you need to turn the screen on to use fingerprint again. It has always been like this.

    Tip: I use Gestures like Double Tap to wake up the screen so you dont need to use the power button.
