Is there any reason why the this app opens the Google Play Store (com.android.vending)? Right now Stay Alive! takes 28MB and the Play Store takes 57MB. Would be nice to reclaim that 57MB back on my  memory starved 1GB Moto G 1st gen.

Have donated and restarted. Disabled as much unneeded features are I could. Now it's consuming 26MB with no Google Play in sight. Thank you.

Guess if you wanted, maybe could just make an even smaller app that JUST disables the screen dimming. I see many many users asking for it. No other competing apps on Google Play were capable of doing that.

The Settings-> Developer options already allow 'Stay Awake' (screen never sleeps when charging), so all I needed this app for was to disable the stupid dimming when on AC/USB.

That dimming is ultra dangerous when using  the phone as a USB attached carphone. Need it on and visible.

Google should fix that to prevent accidents.

Having some issues after Marshmallow upgrade with this app. Guessing it's a minor bug floating around...

When Stay Alive! goes active, my phone reboots about half the time (usually within 5min of the screen dimming). No SA!, no reboot. Disable SA! but keep it running, no reboot. Only happens when active and currently keeping the screen on.

This didn't happen on Lollipop and doesn't happen 100% of the time even now. Not sure how to troubleshoot further, other than "SA! off, no problem, SA! on, problem."

It's very weird, honestly. If I make it 5mins, there will be no problem no matter how long I let it run. It's that first 5mins that's iffy when the screen dims. Will play with the dev settings and shoot you an email if I have more info.

i'm using SA to display a slideshow in chrome. i've tried multiple modes and options but if the tablet (nexus 7 by asus) is plugged into a wall and charging and then the micro usb is removed from the device the screen dims and then shuts down.

No problem.

Glad to see it works.

If you have a minute, can you rate SA! 5 stars in Google Play store, it would really help.

Thank you for contacting me.

Hello Support, I need help. 
I have tasker set to kill "Stay Alive!" when its stop charging and launch it back again when its start charging. The problem is, when it start, "Stay Alive!" will go "off duty".

How to switch from "off duty" to "on duty"?
Does it has to be done manually (to switch)?
How to make "Stay Alive!" always "on duty" all the time when its start?

Will the donation version fix this issue?  

Please advise

Please help.  What do the "Stay Alive!" icons mean (or just point me to where this is explained)

I get the first two icons.  But instead of using colors (what makes the color for "battery" red versus any other color?) you might think about using a plug icon and a battery icon.

I don't understand the difference between "off duty" and "paused".

If the white is a "pause", you might consider the standard icon for "pause" (two vertical rectangles) instead of an arbitrary color.

What's the difference between the white lighting bolt and the "A"?

Also, why does it go to the config screen sometimes, but not all the time?  Am I pressing something else?

Hi,

SA! has 3 modes. 1-Green, 2-Red, 3-White

Mode 1 - Keep screen Alive! on AC/USB power.
Keep your screen Alive! if the device is powered.

Mode 2 - Always keep screen Alive!
Always keep your screen Alive! even when the device is not powered.

Mode 3 - Pause Stay Alive!
Pause SA! and let your screen timeout normally.<BR><BR>"

When SA! is "On Duty", it means that it will keep your screen Alive! When it's "Off Duty", it means that your screen will timeout as configured in your device settings.

The yellow (A) in the notification zone is used to toggle the "Keep screen Alive for selected apps" option on/off

You need to select the icons without touching in between them. There is a space between the icon, and if you select in between them, it's just like if you select the notification entry. It's something I will look into soon.

I just released version 1.5.0.0 and added a FAQ menu option. Do not hesitate to contact me by email for a faster response.

Thank you for your support!

CyanFox is an Android KitKat 4.4.2 ROM which is based on CyanogenMod & AOSP sources but is almost 99% stock Google KitKat. VERY stable and fast, I personally use it as a daily driver with great battery life & urge you all to check out as well! Just visit http://cyanfox-rom.com
Cyan Fox is a lightweight Android 4.3 custom ROM, which is based on AOSP/Android (4.3) and CyanogenMod (10.2) source bases.

There is an option in the donator section to keep your screen on even if the phone is locked. You have to plug your device to make it work because if power was not mandatory it could cause your device to run out of battery by mistake.

Thank you for your support.

Hi! When I open my phone's screen, it has the Stay Alive notification tab, however it says, "Off duty! User not present." I tried looking in the app's options to make it not off duty, and couldn't find a way. Is it supposed to say that? It said this when I just downloaded the app without changing any options. So this was the default settings. I'm using a galaxy Note 4. The only options I've changed now is for it to stay alive while charging, and on battery, and I enabled it for usage access.

+Pierre F lol yes they do! Yes it's not easy. You need to be prepared for a mass amount of glitches, and users not understanding the struggle. I deal with javascript most of the time, and make sure to fill it with console.logs before testing it. It makes it easier to find glitches, and I remove them in production. Plus, 99.9% of glitches with error messages can be Googled!

New version 1.7.0.0 available soon on Google Play!

Now you can keep your screen on except for selected apps. You can also prevent your screen to lock by showing a black screen for selected apps. Great for joggers who want to prevent their AMOLED device locking and quicly wake up their device with a single touch to consult their stats. Can also be used to show a back screen when you run your GPS at night and quickly wake your screen up.

v 1.7.0.0
• NEW: Added free option to SA! except for selected apps
• NEW: Added user configuration to the support email
• BETA: Added requested donator option to show a black screen for selected apps to prevent locking
• Fix battery usage problem
• Fix screen orientation detection
• Fix service getting killed with heavy memory usage
• Changed the modes descriptions to a clearer definition for new users

Can you use this app during a call (to prevent the screen from blanking due to proximity sensor)?

Try to check if they have not moved this option to the developer hidden menu. It's really an android limitation at this point.
