    How to prevent from N97 to turn the screen off

    while running the application the screen turns of, power saving or something, how do I prevent it?
    Thanks,

    You can try How to block the screen saver, but this does rely on a Nokia specific API. There's no standard way to do it.

    what may prevent the screen from going on a screensaver mode? keys, touch, what other actions might prevent it?
    would flashing the light of the display, or playing sound prevent this?
    Thanks,

    Yes, keys and touch. Hmmm... flashing the screen might do it.

    Playing sound won't help, and I don't think vibrate will either. In any case, you can't rely on these, since you need to provide the option to switch them off.

    It shouldn't really be a problem. I've never needed to put code into any game to keep the light on.

    well as I run the application on the N97, after a while the screen turns black... unless I press a key or use the touch, then I guess it is necessary sometimes .

    Sure. In general use, people will be interacting with the app frequently enough for that not to happen (unless you have very long loading times).
