I want to put my phone in a case on my Bicycle but the power button is covered up.

I don't want to root or have to keep taking my phone in and out.

Thanx.

Will the phone be inside the case and not mounted? It won't be used for navigation or taking videos?
How about using those infinite timeout apps in the play store? See if you can set profiles for specific apps you don't want your phone to sleep when it is opened.

I doubt Sony will ever add it, so the best bet would be to ask the CM team to do so.

Hi slannmage,

You can try this in play store

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...screenon&hl=en

It works using your proximity sensor or g-sensor, have a try...
