Microsoft recommends that manufacturers of devices with OLED or AMOLED screens disable the ability to turn off the automatic lock screen to prevent damage to the screen. If you have such a device and want to prevent the device from automatically locking, this app is for you. Usage is extremely simple. Tap the NoSleep button to prevent the screen from sleeping. To protect your screen, the user interface will fade away. To return to normal and allow automatic locking, double tap on the screen. The notification bar and on-screen navigation can be used normally without disrupting the app's functionality so you can check notifications and navigate away from the app if needed. However, due to limitations in the UWP Framework, this app must be run in the foreground at all times because the effect cannot work in the background. This app is not recommended for users without OLED or AMOLED screens as limitations also prevent the app from disabling the backlight.
