I have setup my fingerprint reader and there is abnormal situation: when phone is unused about 30-60 minutes nothing happens when i push a fingerprint reader. I must wake up phone with power button.

Could you add infos about the turing to the tjc wiki page?? It is easy by using Aida from the Jolla App store: Wiki page for Turing: https://together.jolla.com/question/136143/wiki-available-devices-running-sailfish-os/?answer=147873#post-id-147873

Would be great as we are collecting general Info about Phones running Sailfish there. Thanks a lot.

This is a known problem we're trying to address.

At the moment pressing the fingerprint sensor (which doubles as home key) is configured not wake the device from suspend. This is because doing so would roughly double the idle time power consumption (possibly other hw elements stay powered on along with the home key related logic).

just a hint: my xa2 has similar behaviour, sometimes weakeup with fingerprint does not work. i have no idea if it is related to unused time, will have a look on it. have latest update installed. i hope doubletap to wake up will come soon, but i'd even prefer fm radio
