Android :: Sensors Don't Work On Partial Wake Lock

Jan 20, 2009

The accelerometer turns off when the screen is off. I'm guessing this is a bug but I haven't seen it logged. Am I missing something?

Perhaps the power management features need some improvement - the ability to specify what components are needed during a partial_wake_lock so that power can be conserved as efficiently as possible.

BTW, there is a bug logged noting that onSensorChanged() continues to be called for the orientation sensor (during sleep) but the values are not being updated.

HTC Droid Eris :: Android System - Partial Wake Lock

Apr 5, 2010

Since 1.5 I've been having partial wake problems. My eris normally will last a few hours in airplane mode or with just wifi on before the battery drops one or two percent. Sometimes, it will drop like 5 percent in an hour with low battery usage occuring, for example, when airplane mode is on. I check spare parts under partial wake usage, and it is usually very high, sometimes 100% after hours. I have to reboot my phone to fix these problems.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Partial Wake Lock With Fresh 2.0d

Apr 6, 2010

I'm getting wake times near 100% with this ROM and I don't have the first clue why. I wiped and installed properly, and I have autokill set to optimal. Not runinng setCPU or anything, and I've never had this problem before so I don't think its an app.

If anyone could help, I would REALLY appreciate it. I tried dc2.05, but now I have the no audio issue on phone calls from this ROM, so I had to switch back for the fix -.- Really frustrated and really need a working ROM + phone =

AlwaysFlash seems to be the problem, uninstalled and wake time seems to be staying low under all circumstances.

HTC Hero :: Partial Wake Lock - Awake Time 100%

Nov 13, 2009

I have a vanilla Hero. Since I bought it (around 2 months ago), the awake time has NEVER been under 100%. I installed the Modaco 2.9 ROM yesterday (which I highly recommend; my Hero is now much faster) and it's STILL 100%.

Spare parts tell me that the culprit appears to be 'Android system'.

I'd like to reduce my wake time if it's at all possible.

I'm aware of the messaging app/dialer issue; that's not what this is, since I'm using CHOMP sms and it's still an issue.

Android :: Android Agenda Widget - Partial Wake Lock

Sep 7, 2010

Any Android Agenda Widget users here? Downloaded the newest update today (there were a few updates in succession, I think) and it's causing my Droid X to not sleep and it's showing up as Partial Wake Lock the entire time my phone is on. I emailed the developer, but if others are seeing this, please do so as well. It's probably killing many batteries right now.

Android : Wake Lock Does Not Seem To Work

Jun 14, 2010

I'm developing an app in which i need the TCP connection to stay alive. I've implemented a kind of ping/pong system to do this. It works perfectly when the screen is on, but when it goes of the phone stops responding to the pings after a while. I've created a Wi-Fi wake lock but i'm still experiencing still the same problem. Code...

HTC Incredible :: Calendar Partial Wake

Jul 9, 2010

I have been noticing that the Calendar is always at the top of the partial wake usage when I check it in spare parts. As of right now my phone has been unplugged for 3 hours and the calendar has held a 30 minute partial wake lock. The second on the list is the Android system which has only held a 4 minute partial wake lock. Is this normal for the calendar to hold a partial wake lock like this? I heard about the Flickr bug but I do not sync my account with Flickr and never have. I'm not even syncing my calendar with Google currently.

HTC Desire :: Facebook For Android 1.3 - Battery Bug - Constant Partial Wake Use

Aug 4, 2010

Installed the new updated 1.3 version of Facebook for Android this morning. when i checked my phone just now i noticed battery is lower than it should be. a look at the Battery Graph (separate app) shows that it's draining constantly... so i checked the PARTIAL WAKE USE via the Spare Parts app. and voila: the new facebook up stays awake constantly. that's despite having any connectivity turned off (via the network connection switch; i only turn on when i need it to save battery).

Motorola Droid :: Android System And Partial Wake Usage - Battery

Nov 29, 2009

There are a bunch of threads out there talking about battery usage and how to figure out what's draining your battery.

Almost all of them say to go get Spare Parts app from the market and check you "partial wake usage".

I did that and 95% of my partial wake usage is from "Android System".

Is that normal? Anyone who is getting good battery life (20+ hours) - what do you see in the partial wake usage?

I just checked my phone:

13h 10m 23s since unplugged
Partial Wakelock:Android System Total time: 13h 1m 44s

Is this normal?

The only widgets I have are:

Stock power control widget
Ringer Toggle Widget

I am running GDE in the background (not my default home screen).

HTC Desire :: New Handcent Update And Partial Wake Up

Jun 14, 2010

I've got a desire and handcent has been pretty good to me so far. the latest update has things a bit more stable (or so it seems at least) when sending group texts, however,i woke up to find my phone had 3 new text messages..but the phone battery went down from 100% to 83%! i know it's shocking but i got up at 2pm haha today and i got the texts at intervals of 8am and 11am. anyways i'm pretty sure it wasn't any other app as i usually lose about 8-13% at most. i checked the *#*#4636#*#* and in 'partial wake up' battery usage, it said handcent had been on for 4 hours! i know the phone can still be awake even if the screen is off but my settings have always been to not turn on screen when receiving a new message. i'm guessing this problem is because of the message popup staying active? i'll see how this fairs when i wake up tomo morning and if i get any texts..

Motorola Droid :: UID 10074 Using Tons Of Partial Wake Battery

Nov 23, 2009

On my last full discharge, I looked at the Spare Parts app battery history, and took a look at partial wake usage since I've read thats where you can see what apps are really draining your battery. What i saw that above everything was UID 10074, then android system, and then usual stuff. What is UID 10074? I google and searched, but the one time it was mentioned someone said they didn't know. It said something like over 3hours usage for partial wake for UID 10074. My battery life isn't terrible, but this thing seems like its hogging resources?

Samsung Epic 4G :: Partial Screen Lock-up / Fixed Capacitive Button Sensitivity

Sep 2, 2010

But sometimes other small parts/and or button commands lock-up. For example; since I am new to Swype, I decided to take the tutorial and each time I would click (or even tried to slide) the next button, it wouldn't respond took about 5-7 tries.While on the phone with tech/and CS yesterday (for whole diff issue), I asked about the Capacitive Button Sensitivity - as mine wasn't working that well either (as others have mentioned). Tech had me remove the battery for 2 full minutes, and put back in - and now the Capacitive Buttons works perfectly.Anyone else having partial screen/certain buttons not responding to commands? I guess I could try removing the battery again, but I am not sure that will fix it.

Are there any such apps which NEVER have a partial ring?

Android :: Alarm Wake Lock And Services

Dec 18, 2009

I have a question about alarms used with services with regards to wake locks. The documentation explains the behavior using BroadcastReceivers, a wakelock is held during onReceive(), but doesn't describe the behavior for alarms starting services with the RTC_WAKEUP flag. What is the behavior in this case?

I have an app implementing this, an alarm is created with the RTC_WAKEUP flag that starts a service. The service onCreate() then starts a thread to do some network activity. It seems to work just fine but I just want to make sure that I don't need to explicity hold a wakelock myself.

Android :: Unlocking Screen After Wake Lock

Jun 9, 2009

My app requires alerts at certain events, which are very likely to happen while the screen is off. It captures those event perfectly, however, I'm struggling to hide the T-Mobile screen lock after I've acquired wake lock from the PowerManager. I've tried broadcasting Intent.ACTION_CLOSE_SYSTEM_DIALOGS, however, that seems not to work.

Android :: Wake Lock / Phone Restarting Randomly

Jan 28, 2010

I have a service which holds on to a wakelock and the code is similar to this,
public class WakeLockService extends Service {
PowerManager.WakeLock wl;
@Override
public IBinder onBind(Intent arg0) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub return null;
} public void onCreate() {
PowerManager pm = (PowerManager) getSystemService (Context.POWER_SERVICE);
wl = pm.newWakeLock (PowerManager.PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK, "My Tag");
wl.acquire();
} public void onDestroy() {
wl.release();
}

For past two days, my phone has been restarting randomly. Today it was worse, it kept restarting until I uninstalled the app. I tried to search about this behaviour online and found that too many wakelocks may coz the phone to restart. Can there be any other reason? Is the above code right? Should make wl as a final variable? Does the service call onDestroy method when phone shuts down? I am using a broadcastreceiver to start my service at boot up as well.

Android :: Acquiring Wake Lock From Broadcast Receiver?

Any idea what's going on? Is there a better way to do what I'm trying to do?

HTC EVO 4G :: Lock Screen / Wake Behavior?

Jun 24, 2010

Need some help with phone locking behavior, good peoples. here's what i'd like to end up with:

1. always wake based on volume OR power button
2. when on phone - no locking at all, (additionally wake based on orientation like is done currently)
3. some sort of "lock phone" widget on home screen for manual lock
4. auto-lock timer set to say...5 minutes (longer than sleep timer)
5. sleep/screen-off timer set to 30 seconds
6. disable the slide lock (sense UI?) and only use the pattern lock. why do i have to power button wake, slide unlock, then pattern unlock my phone after it goes to sleep after 30 seconds, it's ridiculous! i want to pick it up press a volume key and put my pattern in - after 5 minutes. before 5 minutes i want to just pick it up and wake it unless it was manually locked.

I'll root it if that's what it takes. this is pissing me off daily.

HTC Hero :: Wake Up The Phone To The Lock Screen

Sep 20, 2009

1) I can press a button to 'wake' up the phone to the lock screen, but I may have to press a button 2 or 3 times to wake the phone up. it seems like it's not waking up correctly and on the first button press.

2) Twitter and other notifications 'sometimes' dont happen until I unlock the screen...this COULD be coincidence, but I thought I would throw it out for people.

3) I didnt get a voicemail given on Friday until today, which appeared as a result of me switching off my phone and switching it back on. has anyone else heard of this???

4) I cant figure out a way to stop apps from starting on bootup, such as peep? I use twidroid, so dont need two apps running of the same ilk?? Any help here?


Thanks in advance guys.

General :: App That Wake Up And Turns On Lock Screen Upon Notification?

Closest thing I can find is Popup Notifier, but not only does it wake up the device, it leaves a ton of popups when unlocked. I would rather have popups on the lock screen.

Samsung Captivate :: WiFi - Sleep Policy Causing Wake Lock For Android System Process And Draining Battery

Dec 1, 2010

After noticing my battery was draining quickly, and then after reading this thread, I installed Android System Info to see what was draining my battery so fast. I notice that whenever I would turn on WiFi, the phone will never go to sleep , regardless of what I set the WiFi sleep policy to. After turning off WiFi, the battery still drains heavily.

The WiFi will shut off after 15mins (if you set it to "When screen turns off" or "never when plugged in"). However it seems to keep the CPU on causing it to drain down the battery.

It would seem that whenever WiFi is enabled, the Android system process creates a partial wakelock that does not go away even if you turn off WiFi. The only way to resolve this is by powering off or rebooting the phone.

You can verify this in Android System Info by going into Battery-History-Other Usage-Partial Wake usage to see how much time the "Android System" process holding a partial wake.

I even did a factory reset on the device; and it is still happening so it doesn't appear to be any app that caused the issue. As I said, it works fine as long as I don't enable WiFi.

I already know of two users having this issue, but I'm wondering if folks having battery problems are going through this as well. Is anyone else having similar issues after using WiFi? I'm hoping someone will be able to identify what exactly is putting the wakelock on and we'll be able to find a fix for it. Other than not using WiFi at all or rebooting the phone after using Wifi.

Samsung I7500 : Get Screen To "wake" / Stop Using Lock Button?

Sep 11, 2009

Is there anyway that you can get the screen to "wake" from just touching one of the softkeys and then enter the screen unlock pattern, rather than having to use the dedicated lock button on the side?

It's pretty annoying, especially if the phone is lying on the table and u just wanna look at the screen you cant just mash one of the softkeys.

Android :: How To Register For Multiple Sensors?

Oct 10, 2009

A simple question: How do I register for multiple sensors? I just switched from registerListener(SensorListener listener, int sensors, int rate), which is deprecated, to registerListener(SensorEventListener listener, Sensor sensor, int rate). Previously, I could use " | " to indicate multiple sensors, but now " | " is undefined, so how?

Android :: Filtering Sensors Noise?

May 21, 2010

I'm programming an Augmented Reality application. It's development it's in an advanced state but I can't place the icons on the screen so still as anothers programs does (Layar, in example). This is because of the continuous variations of the sensors. I've tried the three modes of the sensors (FAST, GAME, and NORMAL) but I only get them to move more or less fast. The shivering is the same at different speed.

Finally I thougth I could reach my goal with a digital filter, averaging historical values. But again the icons continues moving, specially the most far placed ones (in the z axis). Please, could some one help me with some clue?

General :: Control Wii With Android Sensors

Jan 12, 2012

Last night i have downloaded Dolphin to play Wii Games. As you can imagine, play with the mouse is not as comfortable to emulate Wiiremote.

My idea is basically:

Control WII emulator with Android Sensors (As accelerometer, gyroscope, inclinometer) like Wiimote does

It seems to be quite interesting, I think that may be connectable by wifi and bluetooth with receiver (pc).
