Disabling Standby and Adding Sounds To Alerts

Hello,

 

I am working on a webworks (javascript/html5) app for the Playbook and I am just about done, but I am having two issues that I am hoping to find answers on here:

 

1) How can I disable standby mode? My app has a timer and I do not want the user's Playbook going into standby mode if they haven't interacted with it for a few minutes.

2) How can I play a sound (wav, ogg, or mp3) as an alert message is on the screen and then the sound stops when the user hits OK on the alert?

 

Thanks for the help.

Re: Disabling Standby and Adding Sounds To Alerts

Update: got the sounds to go, but now I just need some help on disabling the sleep/standby mode. I haven't found anything in the forums.
