Casio Solar Charging (Tough Solar) and Power saving

Hello everyone. I own several Casio watches with the Tough Solar feature.
- W-S220-1BVCF
- GW-S5600-1JF

As you know, there is a power saver feature on these watches where the watch display goes off (in the case of the LCW-M100DSE-2AER, the second hand also stops) and will be turned back on if any button is pressed or a watch is exposed to light.

I can take any of these watches to a bright area both indoors and outdoors (No sun, the sky is basically white but one can comfortably do any task requiring light such as reading) and the face doesn't turn back on unless I face them to a direct light such as full sun or a desk lamp.

My question is this, since Tough Solar watches are supposed to be charged from any light, does the fact that the watch display doesn't turn back on mean it is NOT charging?
I hope that is not the case.
Please excuse my ignorance on the matter.

Thanks a lot :)

I keep all my solar atomic watches face down at night (for some reason they generally only receive in that orientation) and they go into power save mode. If I just turn them over and expose them to the low inside light, they will take some time to "wake up" but they will do so eventually. Otherwise if I tilt the watch back and forth, or shake it, the display comes right up. I'm not entirely sure why that is, but it works. Or, as you mentioned, you can just push a button.
