I've been experimenting porting a timer app to flashlite. I noticed that when the device powers off the screen (backlight) it also shuts down/ suspends the flashlite app. For something like a timer this doesn't work well. I realize you could force it to keep the backlight on and thus never go into standby. However, this isn't great battery-wise. I've seen some apps out there that have found a workaround for this, and they seem to be using flashlite as the interface. I presume you need to use python or one of the other dev languages to get it working?
So in summery, I need a way to keep my flashlite app counting even when the display / device is set to keyboard lock/display off. Such that even if it's in standby / suspend mode it will still sound the alarm.
Any help / direction greatly appreciated!
