I have a simple Windows Mobile application which records GPS coordinates every 5 minutes. The problem is the app works fine as long as the screen is on, as soon as the phone goes in standby mode the app stops working. When I switch on the device the app again starts working again.
What do I do to keep the app working even in standby mode?

Here's a link to some C# code that could be used to turn the screen off:[^].

Which part of the source code on the page I linked to are you having trouble with? It's pretty much self explanatory.

Good effort, my 5 - seems like OP forgot to tag your reply as the aswer :)
I have an application called SmartRunner on my device which also tracks GPS coordinates. Recording stops when one puts the device in stand by mode so there is an application called "Black Me" which turns off the screen to save battery power. You can find it here: Black Me[^]

Hope that helps!
