Android App Will Stop Syncing When Screen Is Off.

Recommended Posts

My computer uses 1.2.82. My tablet is using the latest android version. Whenever the screen of the tablet is off, the syncing stopped. I have used "better wifi on/off" app to keep WIFI always on and the sync speed goes down to about 6 KB/s from about 1 MB/s when the screen is off. 

When I turned on the screen, the sync speed immediately jumps back up.


Android 4.1.1 on Iconia A210.

I wonder if this is some kind of Android "feature"? For example, I use Android Tuner to back up my apps nightly. It offers an option to leave the screen on while backing up because that will make it run faster. I don't know how that works myself, but maybe this is also a question for an Android forum.
