Turn it, flip it upside down, shake or rotate it: If you're constantly move your Jolla, it won't enter standby. Yes, this works on lockscreen too. A bit funny. Minor bug. :)

it should be a good thing... if you take your phone on hand it doesn't go to standby until you put it to the table...

@Luca Yeah, but you can't read anything while you're turning your device constantly 90-degree-wise... :-D

Orientation changes are considered "user activity", i.e. if you keep rotating the device it is not inactive and hence the display will not blank.

The logic is basically inherited from N9 - except N9 only counted landscape/portrait changes.

Ok, let's file it under "unlike features" ;-)

Once https://bugs.merproject.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1331 ends up in release, you can use

mcetool --set-orientation-change-is-activity=disabled

to stop rotations from keeping the display on.
