I have an app named "Alarm Clock":
A user emailed me today to say that they were expecting the alarm to fire even when the PlayBook was in standby mode. While I realize that the first party alarm clock apps on BB phones and PlayBook do this, I didn't realize that third party apps could accomplish this as well. But as this user points out, other alarm clock apps do this. Does anyone happen to know how to do that?
What I have been doing is:
NativeApplication.nativeApplication.systemIdleMode = flash.desktop.SystemIdleMode.KEEP_AWAKE;
What that does prevents the screen from turning off / the PlayBook from going into standby mode, except if they manually do it by pressing the power button or touching the battery icon and then touching "Standby".
