    For those who use this app to control the behavior of their lock screen and the display, the developer has rolled back the last update that broke the app.

    it still stops working for me randomly. It'll say "Awake stay" but when i press a button to bring the screen back i still have to put in my pattern lock or slide the keys.... it'll only actually "awake stay" maybe once or twice. And I dont app kill it cuz i hardly use my ATK unless i been browsin play games and listenin to music and i want to kill all that stuff.

    Interesting. V.1.5.4 is the updated version. But looking at the comments it appears those who have downloaded the app more recently are having better luck (or perhaps have just not waited long enough for the problem to appear.)

    Been running it for a couple of hours this morning and haven't encountered the problem (yet.) I'd recommend that you uninstall the app and reinstall it from the Market. You might have better luck. I completely uninstalled the problematic version and reinstalled only after I found an update was available.

    P.S. I also took the precaution of uninstalling "myLock" that I'd been using while SMW was problematic and I power cycled my phone. (SOP when I install new apps.)

    I've had this app since nov. I never update it as every update just seems to make it worse.

    Can't criticize your approach. But the latest update appears to be stable and it does what it's supposed to do...At least after about 11 hours of use.

    I uninstalled the widget as soon as I realized the update was so inferior. Today I just downloaded the rollback update, and added the Widget back to the desktop manually. It's been running great all day long.

    Appears to be working fine. 24+ hours with no instability.
