alarm not working in sleep mode

Manne 6 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 1

 I have a cheap noname tablet with the latest android on it. The problem I am experiencing is that the xiia alarm fails to work as soon as the tablet is in sleep mode. This makes the alarm pretty useless for me. Since I can't seem to find anyone else with this problem I figure it's a hardware issue? Does anyone know what the problem is, and is there a fix or work-around (besides keeping the screen on all night)?

Thanks a lot!

Some Android devices, specially tablets, can go into a deep sleep. When they go into this deep sleep alarms wont work as you have seen.  We have done some research to try to work around this but havent found a proper solution. We have set this issue on our to do/ to fix list.

Same here with two devices:
1. Noname Tablet, Allwinner A10, Android 4.0.4
2. Huawei Ascend G700, Mediatek MT 6589, Android 4.2.1

Quick and dirty workaround:
Set "Stay awake" under Development options, connect charger over night and switch off display with power button.

This is working with both devices.
