  • a button in the app itself


  • Uses android's WakeLock Class with either SCREEN_DIM_WAKE_LOCK or SCREEN_BRIGHT_WAKE_LOCK lock level based on user settings
  • Timeout period is configurable
  • Switch timeouts from the quick settings tile or the button in the app. clicking them, selects the next timeout and after 1 second the timeout will start, if the quick settings tile or the button are clicked after starting, the timeout will stop.
  • Available timeouts are [30 seconds, 05 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 60 minutes, ∞]
  • An option to enable the screen to dim while the WakeLock is acquired
  • An option to enable holding the WakeLock if the screen is locked, so that the screen will keep on after unlocking, default behaviour is that the WakeLock is released when the screen is locked
  • Multiple theming options [light, dark, system default and material you]
