Moto Z Play fingerprint sensor won't lock phone anymore

The sensor on my phone used to unlock my phone and also lock it if the screen was on. Now it will only unlock and won't read my finger if the screen is on. Not a big deal as it still unlocks the phone, but I can't find a setting to fix it and I'd like it back.

I believe the option to lock the screen with the fingerprint sensor is buried deep in the lock screen Settings.  On my Z2 I opened Settings and typed Lock in the settings 

searchbox.  Then scroll down and tap > Power Button Instantly Locks.  Then on that screen is the option for Fingerprint Sensor.
