Feature: Keep screen on while syncing in Android?


When new notes are downloaded to my Android phone, they often take a while to decrypt. And it seems to be the case that when I just leave Joplin running and put the phone down, the standard timeout locks my phone, which seems to stop the sync/decryption process.

I’ve had to babysit the sync process a lot of times in order to get my notes into my phone; and a few times I’d missed some notes when I needed them on the desktop, because the sync process stopped before Android uploaded them to my sync target.

I know this is just a suggestion for a superficial fix, but I seem to recall someone saying Joplin can’t sync in background (which would be the preferred option of course), so maybe this could help at least a little.

Or am I doing something wrong?
