    Fix Version/s:     (was: 2.1.0)
> Camera use changes idleTimerDisabled timeout
> --------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-1968
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>    Affects Versions: 2.2.0
>         Environment: Xcode 4.5.1 on Mac OSX 10.7.5
>            Reporter: Paul R.

>             Fix For: 2.4.0
> I used application.idleTimerDisabled = YES in my didFinishLaunchingWithOptions routine
in AppDelegate.m to keep the application from sleeping, but now using the camera resets that
when using capture video, and my app now goes to sleep and times out during file transfer.
I'm assuming the Camera object employs it's own idleTimerDisabled to keep the phone from sleeping
while it's recording, and then upon exit sets it back to false, overwriting my setting.
> Ran some tests and here's what I found:
> - in Cordova 2.1.0 & 2.2.0, WITHOUT "application.idleTimerDisabled = YES" in AppDelegate.m,
both devices go to sleep after 1 minute (which is what my phone's auto-lock is set to)
> - in Cordova 2.1.0, WITH "application.idleTimerDisabled = YES" in AppDelegate.m, the
device goes to sleep after 5 minutes
> - in Cordova 2.2.0, WITH "application.idleTimerDisabled = YES" in AppDelegate.m, the
device goes to sleep after 1 minute
> As stated by Shazron in this should not
be a Cordova API issue, which makes sense as AppDelegate is not part of the Cordova library.
But what is causing this change then? Can anyone shed some light on this?
