[solved] Timer in android doesn't trigger with screen turned off

  • My timer is set up to trigger an event after 5 minuts. If device screen is on or device itself is connected to my laptop via usb -- it works. I can hear a sound after 5 minuts.

    When you disconnect phone from laptop, screen is off after timeout I can hear no sound after scheduled 5 minuts.

    Is this an android eventloop issue?
    I have tried to expose QTimer object to QML but it behaves the same way.

    How do I solve this issue? Would wrapping QTimer into worker thread helps here?

  • Is the only way to do it is to create android service and connect it to my app?

  • I have added PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK management using androidextras and it works now.
