Insomnia


Tiny application to suppress blanking display of the Android device.

As an Android developer, I need frequently examine how some application behaves through extended period of time. In such case I need a smart and rapid switch, to lock device in sleepless mode. Since I didn't found such application which satisfy my needs, I wrote my own.

Unlike other similar tools, this one has very minimalistic interface, without configuration and without any windows. Once launched, it keeps device's display turned on, showing only small reminder in notification area.

It can be dismissed by running it once more or by tapping message in notification area.

Beware that sleepless device can drain your battery very fast!

If you wish the application could also speak your language, grab strings from my site and send me your translation.

Perfect complement for Night Mode app Usefull when you read in a browser, etc, not only for developing (for that you would probably be connected through USB for debugging and thus could activate the Stay Awake mode in Developer Options).

Just what I needed! Takes up tiny memory in KFire & phone, keeps my device on exactly as I need. (Btw to the person who asked this: Wake Locked = screen always on mode, and Wake Released = back to regular normal mode.) I use it while using Kindle idly during my massage sessions for playing music & watching clock, & much more. PERFECT! Later: stopped working (after an update?). Uninstalling for awhile to try other apps.
