I use clock widgets. The problem is that when I lock the phone, all applications are killed (except some system applications) including clock widgets. When I unlock my phone then I see that clock widget is stuck on time when I locked phone. I have to restart widget. Please tell me that how can I keep my clock widgets work in background without being killed when the phone is locked.

  • Why are all the apps getting killed in the first place? Solve that problem first. – user202027 Feb 9 '18 at 19:40
  • That shouldn't be the case. Apps shouldn't get killed when you're locking your phone. – Wrichik Basu Feb 10 '18 at 12:12

My problem is solved. Following link helped me.


I opened Phone Manager, then Power saving, then Protected apps and then I turned on the apps which I do not want to close after turning off my screen.
