Samsung Fascinate :: Taking The Phone Out Of Sleep

Nov 11, 2010

Is there any other way to take the phone out of sleep mode, other than pressing the power button? I find myself taking it out of sleep a bunch of times per day, and I just worry about how long the dinky power button will last being pressed all the time. I know its probably neurotic to worry about such things, but I just wanted to not send my fascinating Fascinate to an early grave because of some dumb button

Samsung Fascinate :: Apps Closing When Phone Goes Into Sleep Mode

Sep 30, 2010

Until yesterday if I had an app like Pandora or ESPN Radio playing/running when the screen kicked off the app would keep playing. However, now when the phone goes to sleep everything else gets shut off. I have not altered anything myself per se. Even uninstalled a few apps like AutoKiller [which I had installed for weeks and everything worked fine with it on and installed] but the problem persists and remains. This really perplexes me as I want/need these apps to play with the screen off like they did before. For the life of me I don't know why this is; nor can I find anything in settings to change.

Android :: Detect User Idle Time

Jul 21, 2010

I would like to know if android has some kind of 'idle time broadcast message'. So for example if the user is currently using one activity of my application but haven't touched the screen or used any keyboard (and doesn't have the autolock at phone level or any screensaver) for a while, I would like to be informed (let's say after 60 seconds). I would like to avoid doing it manually (by tracking each user click, touch, activity changes...)

HTC EVO 4G :: How Inadvertently Solved Wake-time / Sleep-time Trouble On Evo?

Aug 7, 2010

I was having the waketime/sleeptime problem that many, many folks have reported and my battery life was obviously crap...and took forever to charge as has also been noted. I had already turned off all the auto-update stuff that I did when I first got the phone. Then I read the many posts abut Facebook app being the problem, but when I tried that it turned out that I was still running the old version 1.2, so apparently that wasnt causing it on my Evo.

Not really wanting to do a factory reset, I thought I'd check for other app updates in case one of the other apps had 2.2 bug fixes. Ran a sync thru the AppBrain app, and it found three updates that I hadnt been notified of:

Once those updates were completed, my EVO immediately starting going to sleep as it used to. I watched it for a few hours after the update and it continued to show realistic numbers for wake vs. sleep. My battery was almost depleted at this point, so I powered it off, and did the battery pull for good measure before powering back on and plugging in to charge during the night. This was all late Thursday night. All day Friday my battery performed VERY well...much better than even during 2.1. I had it on charge most of the day while listening to Pandora at my desk. I unplugged it to go home and now checking it this morning, it's now been off charge for 14h 39m, show wake time of 33:44 vs. sleep time of 15:28, and shows 80% battery remaining! This whole scenario makes me wonder if one of those three apps had a similar bug to Facebook. If you have those...you might want to take a closer look.

HTC Hero :: Enabling Mobile Network After Idle Time Not Working

Aug 30, 2009

All I want to do is from time to time check my mails. For this, I want to activate the mobile network connection (3G) manually for a short period of time, and then de-activate it again.

The problem is that enabling the "mobile network" checkbox after my phone has been idle for some time, doesn't actually activate the 3G connection. (no "H" or "G" icon in the notification bar)

So when I open the mail app it complains with a "connection failed" message.

Even better would be if I could find a way to have my mails automatically checked whenever the connection is activated ...

Other than that I'm very happy with the phone.

Samsung Fascinate :: 3G Connectivity For Long Time To Stream

Oct 10, 2010

I just made the switch from Moto Droid to Samsung fascinate and can't say that I'm all that happy with my decision, No froyo, horrible artifact and color hue, 3 hour charge times, a worse benchmark than my old phone. And on top of that it appears to have terrible reception! While using this phone in the same locations that I had zero problems on the droid, I can't stay connected to 3G to save my life. Youtube and Pandora are useless because I'm not able to keep connection long enough to stream. It has also caused the browser to time out pretty regularly.

Samsung Moment :: Cl14 - Screen Timeout - Sleep With Video

Mar 8, 2010

The two main issues im having are the battery will be completely drained in 1-2 hours in low service areas... post here

Now this problem. the phone will not stay asleep after timeout or end button . I have to restart the phone when it does this to make it work normal for a a short while... then usually every day... just a few hours after a restart, it does it again.

So its very consistent, very annoying. Does it with apps or no apps, nothing running or everything running, with service, or with out service.... doesn't matter.

As you can see in the vid, extremely occasionally "shaking" the phone will make it stop. but as im typing this now, its back on again. most of the time shaking doesn't do anything. Next time i may try chunking it at my fireplace

Samsung Captivate :: Screen Turn On When Press Power Button From Sleep?

Sep 6, 2010

Anyone else having a problem of not having the screen turn on when you press the power button from sleep? It doesn't happen often but it does happen. This is my second Captivate as my last one would shut itself off randomly and that phone also had this problem.Yes, I make sure I pressed the power button and waited a couple seconds to make sure it just wasn't lag but I can guarantee you it is not. Like I said, it doesn't happen all the time but maybe once every 2 days. I'm guessing it's a slight problem with other users as it happened on my last phone but I'm not sure. Hopefully it's a software issue.

Samsung Fascinate :: Any Way To Change From Unlock Pattern To PIN

Oct 22, 2010

I just got this phone last week and I absolutely love it. I came from a blackberry and of course I was used to unlocking my phone with a PIN instead of the pattern (1st android owned) that this phone has. I was wondering if there is a way to have that option in my SF. I hate the pattern, I checked out the market and there is an app for that but the reviews were horrible. If this is even possible on this phone yet or I have to wait on the upcoming 2.2 update and yes my phone is not rooted.

HTC Incredible :: Up - Awake Time And Sleep

Aug 3, 2010

When you press the button on the top of the phone, does it immediately go into Sleep Mode? My screen is set to time out after 30 second. When it does, is that Sleep Mode? I ask this because when I press the button to bring the phone back up, I can check the Up Time and Awake Time and it doesn't appear to have been asleep. For example: I just pressed the button after the screen timed out. The Up Time is 6:28:14 and the Awake Time is 2:37:12. I am guess that Up Time is from the last time the phone was OFF and then powered by ON. Awake time appears to be how long it has been awake from SLEEP. I just don't understand when it actually goes to sleep.

Samsung Fascinate :: Change Bootup/shutdown Animations And Sounds?

Oct 30, 2010

I have seen more than a couple different inquiries (including some by me) on these topics in multiple places in the SF forums and elsewhere. Because of this I figured I would try and collect all the information regarding changing these things and put them into this one thread. If you think I am missing or forgot something, let me know and I can add it in (such as new files, clarification, etc).

Thanks to the respective creators of each file included in this thread. Without you guys we wouldn't even be detailing this process.

DISCLAIMER: This is intended to provide easy step-by-step directions to change bootup and shutdown animations and sounds. I take no responsibility if you screw up your phone attempting to follow these instructions. Read everything carefully.

Related threads:
Anyone had success changing boot animation?
-(thank you contributors to this thread)

Fascinate Boot Animation Links and Requests
- has a couple of different animations confirmed to work with the SF (thanks to SirKronan for compiling and respective creators for your work)
*Android Scribble 2.0
*Droid Star Wars R2D2
*Android Bios Boot animation
*Windows 7 boot animation
*Spinning droid custom boot animation
*Regular Galaxy S bootup animation
*Droid peeing on apple boot animation (can you confirm this one saps?) (confirmed below)
*Numerous Captivate animations (Stainless steel android, rotating colors android, electric android, etc.)

Here is one sound file (the DROID noise) which is in both formats for bootup and shutdown:
Bootup: DROID.wav
Shutdown: DROID.ogg

Here are some shutdown animations (originally created as bootup animation's from xda user GLa'DOS):
*Android scribble w/yellow color burst (altered by saps)
*Android scribble w/no color burst (altered by saps)
*Android scribble w/green color burst (altered by me)
Another shutdown animation:
*Galaxy S shutdown

PLEASE NOTE: You must be rooted. You must reboot in order for these changes to take effect. You should have Root Explorer (although I am sure there is a way with ADB commands as well though). You may want to create a backup (CWM or the like), just in case. Also, most of the people I have seen do this are running a version of Dirrk's/jt's kernel, which allow boot/shutdown animations to be changed. The kernel you are currently using when attempting to change the animations must allow for them to be changed for this to work.

The file needed to change your boot-up animation should be a .zip file.

I successfully changed my bootup animation by doing the following:

Boot-up animation:
1) download a new boot animation .zip file (I put mine in /sdcard/downloads)
2) open Root Explorer
3) navigate to where you put the new .zip
4) copy the new .zip
5) paste it into /data/local
6) rename it "bootanimation.zip." (if it isn't already)

Also, if you want to change the startup/shutdown sounds:

Startup sound:
1) DL a new sound file
2) convert to a .wav file (using Winamp+.wav converter/iTunes)
3) put on SD card
4) open Root Explorer
5) navigate to /system/etc
6) rename "PowerOn.wav" to "PowerOn.wav.old"
7) navigate to where you placed the DL'ed .wav file
8) copy
9) paste into /system/etc
10) rename it "PowerOn.wav"

Shutdown sound:
1) DL a new sound file
2) convert to .ogg file (I used Winamp+.ogg converter)
3) put on SD card
4) open Root Explorer
5) navigate to /system/media/audio/ui
6) rename "shutdown.ogg" to "shutdown.ogg.old"
7) navigate to the DL'ed .ogg file
8) copy
9) paste into /system/media/audio/ui
10) rename it "shutdown.ogg"

Shutdown animation (DL is above as well): (thanks to saps):

Motorola Droid X :: 2.2 Sleep - Running Time Increasing

Sep 29, 2010

Okay so I seem to have a new sleep issue on 2.2. I also had this same issue with the leaked 2.2. This is what happens. My phone will be okay for maybe a day or even a day and a half. it also might occur after only a few hours. Phone will be sleeping fine and then all the sudden I notice my running time is increasing, even when the phone should be sleeping. Then the next day and every day after my running time is at 100% until I do a reboot on the phone. Here is the odd thing with this. If I go to partial wake usage there isn't anything there causing it. All the partial wake things are very small like they should be. With the GPS issue it was Android System that was causing the phone not to sleep and it was obvious. With this issue there is nothing showing in partial wake. I've also seen a few others post replies in certain threads with this issue. I've tried doing a wipe and starting over and that was last night. Within about 6 hours or so off the charger today the issue was already back. We also have another Droid X in the household and I took a look at it tonight and it's also running 100% since off charger and nothing really showing up in partial wake. I'd just like to see how many others are seeing this and hopefully someone can be smart enough to figure out what's causing it. I can't say for sure if I'm actually seeing a battery impact or not. Battery still seems decent to me. It's just very annoying knowing it's not working the way it's supposed to.

Samsung Fascinate :: Screen Went Black

Sep 13, 2010

Came into work this morning, plugged the phone into the Samsung dock, was trying to get to my gmail when the screen went out. Well, I've had some annoyances with the screen timeout, so I thought nothing of it. Tried pushing the power button. Nothing. Took the phone off the dock. Tried again - nothing. The backlight comes on on the capacitive buttons, but the screen is black. Held down the power button - the power off/airplane/silent toggle comes on. Okay, I thought - maybe it's frozen up. Powered down, got the VZW splash screen. Powered back up, got the whole bootup animation. After the VZW splash screen, screen goes black and I'm right back in the same place again. I've also tried this process with removing the battery. Same thing happens. Seems to linger at the Verizon splash screen longer than I remember, too, on bootup. About 20 seconds. So to recap, here I am: The backlight on the capacitive buttons is on (and not dimming, btw). If I hold down power, I get the power off menu. Otherwise, the screen is black, and not responding to any button presses. I'm running Launcher Pro, otherwise stock/not rooted. Need help - don't have time to go wait at the vzw store for an hour today.

Samsung Fascinate :: Used This App And Now My Screen Is Black

I opened this app (battery booster, can't post link because I am new) after downloading it excited to hoping it was better then a previous one I was trying that seemed to do next to nothing.I saw the brightness button and hit it. It showed 11%. I was like oh I thought I had this all the way down.so I use the scroller to take it all the way down assuming 0% meant that it was the lowest it could possible dim the screen.well it sure is a battery saver considering I can't even see my screen as its completely BLACK
1. Why would you even allow something like this in a app.
2. Please help me fix it.
I have tried for about an hour to assume where the scroll down, and mounting the phone to my computer so that I could possibly uninstall it via computer with no luck.
