AutoStandby Updated To Version 2.1 – Now Application Aware

AutoStandby is a simple application that automatically puts your phone into a power saving standby mode after a certain amount of time. Personally I am a big fan of the application so I was happy when I head that they just updated the application with more features. The change log is below:

  • Flexible delay value. Enter the number of seconds you want AutoStandby to wait.
  • Exclusion list. Now you can customize which applications you want to prevent AutoStandby from activating.
  • Choose between Standby mode, Lock mode, or both!
  • Streamlined options and online help document now make it easier than ever to use.
  • Enhancements for OS 4.6. (Bold)
  • Improved AutoStandby “algorithm”
  • Fixed Welcome screen reappearing issue
  • Renamed “Excluded Apps” to “Disabling Rules”
  • Allow visibility of disabling app rules that are selected but not necessarily running
  • Apps that run at startup are not able to be selected from the rule list.
  • As always, a free upgrade for existing owners.

You can pick up the update or purchase the application in the store at this link.

Thanks Tom for sending this one in!

  1. Really like this program, but I wound up going back to the 1.5 version since the new version now kicks you out to the home page when it goes into standby. 1.5 would leave whatever you were working on as the return screen, which is ideal for me since I often have to run to do something, will pocket the BB for a few minutes (knowing I don’t have to worry about accidental keypresses), and then can go back to what I was doing without navigating back to the program and file I was using.

  2. Looks like one of my secret new features sneaked itself into 2.1 without being fully implemented :(. In the future, this will allow you to select for certain applications to “switch to homescreen” if it is the active window since things like media players intercept the mute keypress event, AutoStandby might not activate if you leave it up on a media player–it would only mute the sound.

    At any rate, this will either be temporarily removed or an option in the next release. Thanks for your support.
