Default Notification LED and Stamina Mode

Hi everyone,

As you might notice, when you have Stamina Mode on you won't get LED notifications on your Xperia Z.

There’s a great app on the Play Store called Light Flow! This app let you personalize every type off notification with a vast set of colors!

The thing is, it only works with Stamina Mode off! Even if I have the application in the white list!

Anyone manage to make LED notifications work with Stamina Mode??

I got a question, how do I access the stamina mode white list?
I can't find it on my Z settings.

Settings > Power management > Stamina mode (Tap on it) instead of just activating it by using the slider

the same part that is responsible for notifications is responsible for showing the led. I don't think this is a service that you can white list. So hopefully Sony will see this as an bug and exempt the notification service from stamina, it they are able to control this independent from the rest of the core os.

No no no.

It doesn't prevent the service.

It prevents other apps from running under the lockscreen so they never receive notifications to show.

Sony have already provided the solution, you can add apps to the white list so that they DO run under the lockscreen (and thereby receive notifications).

Never, ever conform

I used Light Flow on my GSIII and it caused massive battery drain, so I won't be using it on my XZ when it comes tomorrow...
