I need to use an app on my phone constantly to enter data but I cannot find any way of preventing the phone from switching the screen off and going into standby mode.
When I resume I have to navigate my way back into the app which is very frustrating.
In WM6.5 it was possible to prevent sleep mode on mains power. Surely something like this is available in WP7?
Any app I have running on my Lumia on the homescreen opens instantly when I unlock it, why not leave the app open ??
If I have helped at all, a click on the White Star is always appreciated :

That does not work for me. The app is left open and on phone resume it is active, but clearly the developers have not written any resume functionality into it as it reverts back to the home page so I have to navigate through to the page I want.
However even if the app behaved correctly, it is still frustrating to have to switch the phone on, swipe the lock screen away etc. every couple of minutes. Why can't I leave it switch on as I could with WM6.5?
