ForceDoze is an app that forces Doze mode right after you turn off your screen. Instead of waiting for the default time period (30 mins), Doze kicks in immediately. ForceDoze also disables motion sensing, so Doze doesn't activate while in your pocket or while the device is moving with screen off, giving far more battery savings than standard Doze functionality. ForceDoze also allows you to whitelist specific apps so they don't get suspended or disabled when Doze mode is active. If your device OEM has disabled Doze on your device, then ForceDoze can enable it for you.


• Force enable Doze right after screen off or after a user-specified delay
Disable motion sensors so Doze doesn't periodically poll the sensors to check if the device is stationary or not. You can turn this off if you experience issues with sensors
Keep motion sensors enabled but prevent Doze from suspending during movement
Whitelist apps so they don't get fully suspended/disabled when Doze mode is active
Block apps so they don't run in background and eat your battery while your device is Dozing
Block app notifications so they don't spam your device with battery-draining notifications while your device is Dozing
Modify Doze parameters to fully take control of how Doze works on your device
Tasker support (enable/disable ForceDoze, change settings and add/remove apps from whitelist)
• See at what times the device has entered/exited Doze mode and the battery percentage at that time
Disable Internet access during Doze to maximize standby times
• Enable Doze mode on your device if your device OEM has disabled it
No-root mode so you can use this app without root privileges (Requires you to execute an ADB command from your PC to grant it the `android.permission.DUMP` permission (and additionally `android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS if you're on Nougat), instructions inside app and app description on Play Store)

ForceDoze requires ROOT. If you do not have a rooted device, please execute the following command via ADB on your PC:

"adb -d shell pm grant com.suyashsrijan.forcedoze android.permission.DUMP"

Additionally, if you're on Nougat and not have a rooted device, you also have to execute the following command, in addition to the command mentioned above:

"adb -d shell pm grant com.suyashsrijan.forcedoze android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS"

After granting the permissions, restart the app. You will then be able to use ForceDoze without root. If you do not execute the command, you will not be able to use the app without root.

Frequently asked questions:

Auto-rotate/brightness doesn't work after turning on the device
Please turn on Auto-rotate/brightness fix in the app Settings. If that doesn't work, the best thing you can do is to turn on Don't disable sensors on screen off in the app Settings.

I have trouble getting push notifications from apps (ex: GMail)
Only high-priority push notifications are delivered while the device is in Doze mode, normal-priority notifications (ex: from Gmail) are delivered during the Doze maintenance window or when you wake up the device. This is standard Doze behavior and it cannot be changed

My device doesn't turn on and I have to restart my device to fix
This is most probably being caused by disabling motion sensors, pretty common on LG devices. To fix, turn on Don't disable sensors on screen off in the app Settings or use the Xposed option
