It does not work in my project

See original GitHub issue

Hello. Thank you for you work. But this package works fine in a new empty project, created a moment ago, but does not work in my real project. React-native version is 0.52.2 in both projects. Maybe you know what could be the causes of incorrect work?

Works fine

Won’t stay awake in one of my apps. The screen turns off after the time specified in the settings.

jaltincommented, Jun 6, 2019

A bit of a late comment, but for anyone that that has problems with this plugin not working and finding this issue, here are my findings.

For me, the KeepAwake.activate() call did not have any effect and the screen went to sleep.

This happened on iOS only (tested on iPad Air 2, iPhone 6 and iPhone XS) and I realised that when running the app from Xcode (running by pressing play button), then the plugin doesn’t seem to work.

As soon as I don’t run from Xcode and just start the app from the device the screen does not go to sleep.

Thanks for a great plugin!
