I have recently purchaced a bluetooth keyboard and have been using it with. My Galaxy Player 5.0 (running 2.3). I was wondering if there was a way that I can still type using my bluetooth keyboard when the screen is locked. At the moment when I lock my screen, the bluetooth keyboard stop working and anything that I type while the screen is locked is lost. I would like to have Android keep logging what I type on the bluetooth keyboard, even when the screen is off. This is an odd request, but my parents only allow me one hour of screen time per day and if the screen is turned off they are fine with me continuing to type documents, emails and messages, as long as the screen is turned off.

Thanks! Any help will be greatly appreciated.
