[Q] Daydream while docked ... screen goes blank (at some point)
I dock my phone during the night, and ideally, I'd like Daydream to kick in whilst it is docked (using Timely as the Daydream app). So far, so simple - just set this up under Display Settings, right?
The problem I have is that the screen goes blank (at some point - I'm not exactly sure when, although I have a suspicion it is when the battery reaches 100% charge). However, I'd quite like Daydream (i.e. Timely) to continue to be displayed so that when I wake up I can see the time. A small thing I know, but it's one of those mildly irritating things that gets more annoying each day
Previously, I had a Galaxy Nexus, and it does this without a problem, so 'something' is obviously blanking the screen on the Xperia Z (which I don't want happen).
Possibilities I've considered:
1. Use Smart Connect (or whatever it's called) to launch Timely when docked. This also seems to 'blank' the screen, seems to need the phone to be unlocked (I have, and must have, a PIN code lock), and it doesn't also seem to use Timely in full-screen nor in 'dim' mode.
2. Set up Tasker to disable whatever is blanking the screen when docked - definite possibility, but I've not figured out what is doing this. Also, setting the screen to not clear doesn't seem to work. Separately, I've tried to ensure the screen remains on whenever Endomondo is loaded/running, but this doesn't seem to 'stick', so I'm guessing it won't stick for the docked/Daydream scenario.
Would love to hear of any ideas, or ideally, solutions.
