  • Question

  • What's the equivalent for ApplicationIdleDetectionMode in WP 8.1 Store App (Not Silverlight)?

    My fitness app needs this.

  • I have resorted to Display.DisplayRequest.

    This is less than optimal though, since the screen is constantly on and therefore prone to erratic touces of buttons and so on.

    I still need help.

    The app needs to run while the screen is off. Just like it did on WP7 with PhoneApplicationService.Current.ApplicationIdleDetectionMode.
