Complete overhaul version 2.0 is here!
Explaination on new permissions:
Outgoing call monitor permission is to perform automatic activate of Screen Standby by dialling *77# or launch your app (e.g browser for 2769737 – assignable number). New wifi permissions are for remote controller features. Superuser to explicitly tell the app use Root access. Be assured that the app collects none of your private info.
☆ Screen Standby is a tiny app featured THREE TIMES on XDA-Developer portal and LifeHacker! (
☆ Need ROOTED devices
☆ If you have problem, use the new troubleshooting feature
– Ever wish you could turn off the screen without putting the phone to sleep (so YouTube, internet radio apps, etc continue to play)?
– Ever wish you could use your device’s MHL / HDMI streaming ability to play movie or game on the big screen without overheating?
☆ Screen not turn on again? Read down for instructions of different methods to turn screen on when normal methods do not work.
From user report: Normally, with the same amount of time watching movie, battery drain drops from 30% down to just 2%!!!!!!!!!!!
It will turn off the device’s screen backlight while keeping the phone or tablet running for MHL / HDMI streaming|gaming. That means you can now watch movie / play games on big screen and can still turn off the screen (touch screen still works!).
If you’re using it for downloading large files over WiFi, having the screen off can save battery life as well. If you’re an avid streamer or downloader, it’s definitely worth checking out.
– Switch off the screen temporarily without actually putting the phone into ‘sleep mode’. The phone is still running! It saves your battery, avoids heating to prolong battery life
– Remote controllers control Android devices using Wifi / Wifi-direct
– Having TOUCHPAD feature! Great for controlling external display without the need for buying a new mouse.
– Having 4 methods of disabling screen backlight so it guarantees to work with all devices
– Simple interface
– It has a nice little widget that let you quickly turn the screen off from your homescreen
– Works with every devices (extensively tested on XDA thread)
– Various settings
– Tasker compatible (see XDA thread for instruction)
– It is ads-supported but you can turn off ads banner in setting easily (however, please enable it to support further development of the app)
+ Click on the app notification on your status bar or
+ Simply put the phone into true sleep (short press power button) then turn it on (power button again)
+ Temporarily lid the light a bit by shaking the device or (experimental!) hover your device (turn on in settings)
+ Use the ‘EMERGENCY ON’ button or ‘ON’ button in 2 by 1 app widget
+ If HDMI/MHL detection is enabled, disconnect the cable

    WOW! Thank you very much!
    It works PERFECTLY with my Kindle Fire HD
    I searched all day for a direct download of this apk file for the D-Link SharePort Mobile app to load into my Kindle Fire HD 7″. I’m using it with SharePort function of my new D-Link SharePort Go Mobile Companion Router with Rechargeable Battery ( DIR-506L ). This app is NOT available from Amazon because this app and device combo enables Kindle users to infinitely expand their local storage, Amazon hates that because they’re focused on SELLING you stuff and they’re making it very hard for us to enjoy the content we already own.  I have over 600 DVDs backed up on a storage drive and now I can take any/all of them with me, where ever I go. Thanks again!!!

  • Thanks for creating such a cool post that is admittedly o.k. written are referring plenty of friends concerning this.
