Default [Q] Lock Screen Notifications

I am trying to use NILS to do my lock screen notifications. For the life of me I can not get the app to work right, nmeaning the phone wont wake up. All I really want is the notifications to wake up my phone and dispaly them on top of the cm11s lockscreen. I have tried every setting The app has to offer. Has anyone been able to do this yet. Any suggestions will be appreciated
