Mobian: 2 week as main phone

I've been having the same problem. Haven't found the solution either.

There are a couple solutions to this. One is to use Wake Mobile like was kqInit suggested. I've used it successfully already (just got my phone last Friday).

Another is to make a systemd timer that periodically wakes the phone up, which then lets the Alarm app have a chance to activate the alarm periodically. Of course, its accuracy is limited by how often you wake it up (e.g. if you make your phone wake up every 15 minutes, then your alarm will be 0-15 minutes late depending on what you set it to). Adding the timer has the additional advantage that other apps on your phone can also check email and other messages periodically, which they can't do if the phone is asleep all the time. Note, other people have also used a timer for this purpose with success before me, which means that it is reasonably reliable. You need to make two files for the timer in the /etc/systemd/system directory. They should have the same basename but different prefixes. They would be

Description=Wake up the system to allow the alarm to work and check messages


Description=Wake up the system to allow the alarm to work and check messages

OnCalendar=*-*-* *:00,15,30,45:00


Where the "OnCalendar=*-*-* *:00,15,30,45:00" line indicates when it should go off. In my case, I have it set for every 15 minutes. Note the '*' for the year, month, day, and hour fields; the 00 for the second field; and the comma separated values for the minute field giving when it should go off. If you want to do a different interval, you will need to adjust this. I've set the accuracy field to a large value (m is for millisecond) because I don't need the timer to be more accurate than one second.

gnome-session-inhibit --inhibit 'idle:suspend' zenity --info --text "Inhibiting sleep. Press ok when ready to stop this"

Just make a .desktop file for it and give it an icon and you're good.

Thanks for the script.
