Constant calls from the alarm manager even though I have it set to adjust brightness only on screen wake. No location services have been enabled for the device and it's on slowest poll rate yet it's doing them pretty frequently in debugs (every 6 seconds).
If brightness adjust is set to happen on screen wake, why is it still constantly being called from AlarmManager?
Wouldn't it make sense to use android.intent.action.SCREEN_ON?
Why is it checking when the screen is off?
Definitely can't recommend or buy this until these are answered/resolved.
Lux needs to poll every few seconds to check which app is currently in the foreground. This is required to disable Lux when an app in the 'sleep list' is open. I used to make the sleep list optional, but then I got swamped with people who couldn't install apps because Lux's overlay was enabled.
That being said, this polling is disabled when the display is off, so I'm not sure why some people are having issues with partial wakelocks.
You need to disable the system auto-brightness for Lux to work reliably. The paid version has automatic night mode and finer grained adjustment settings.
Hmm, if it's only affecting some of us and you haven't seen a relationship between devices or OS, it might be one of our settings.
What if people who have this problem posted all their Settings and those who didn't also did? What that be helpful or tell you things you already knew?
I did note that after disabling Lux and re-enabling it, the wakelocks temporarily disappeared.
We're not solving some chaotic migration of two legged beetles, dang it! These are computers and they are predictable!
As I mentioned above, curiously, WLD records high levels of wakelocks for Lux but does NOT list Lux in the list of "wakeup triggers". I'm not sure if this is a clue to what's going on as I'm not clear what WLD does.
Also, are we sure this affects only some users? Despite the 1000's recorded wakelocks when the device is asleep, it's not causing me severely degraded battery life (though I have NOT done tests). Maybe it's affecting many, but few are complaining/have noticed? As you'll see below my OS doesn't come much more stock than an N4...
