SOD Killer (Sleep of Death)

This is an application I built to solve the Sleep Of Death (also known as Screen of Death) issue.

The Sleep of Death (SOD) causes Android not to wake up when you try to unlock your device. The root cause of the issue (I think anyway) sits within the Kernel however it needs to be fixed by the Device maker.

What this app does is prevent your phone to sleep properly which therefore means that when you come to unlock your device you will be able to unlock it as the phone is actually not sleeping.

As this app is keeping your device awake, it will obviously take up more battery, which is a compromised to have a phone able to wake up, receive notification and more importantly able to wake you up in the morning through the Alarm application.

This has only been tested on the Nexus 4, but theoretically should work on any devices

What's New

Version 0.5.20160522

A small release to have an option to allow the program to run in the foreground. What this actually does is it prevent the background process from being killed by the Android system, which hopefully means that it adds an additional layer to keep the device awake to prevent SOD issues.
