How do I get Poweramp to wake screen when new song starts?

Recommended Posts

I've just switched from Mixzing to Poweramp. How do I get Poweramp to wake the screen for each new song? It works fine with Mixzing but it's not waking when I use Poweramp.

Poweramp does not have that feature at present. You set either have the screen set to be on all the time, or allow Android to control screen activity.

Thanks Andre. What do you mean "allow Android to control screen activity"?

Edit - In the Lock Screen settings, I already have "Enable Android Lock Screen" checked.

As in the device's normal screen sleep timeout values, controlled by Android not the app. All Poweramp currently supports is to make the screen always-on. Like you, I'd rather like a brief auto-wake on track changes too, would be especially useful when using random play.

Well that's what I'd like. With Mixzing, it wakes the screen every time a new song starts and the Android screen timeout turns it off after 30 seconds (or whatever I have my timeout set to).

With Poweramp it's not waking the screen at all.

Yep, as I said, that's just the way Poweramp works at present.

I'd love it if Max might be able to find a bit of time to tackle a few of these fairly trivial "low hanging fruit" user requests in between his work on v3 of Poweramp, but other than bug fixes all of his efforts for the past four years or so have been going into the new audio engine project.
