Sleep mode

Sleep mode

Sleep mode saves battery power by putting HTC Desire SV into a low power state while the display is off. It also stops accidental button presses when HTC Desire SV is in your bag. You’ll still receive messages and calls though, and missed calls and messages appear on the lock screen.
Tip: To prevent missed calls or messages from appearing on the lock screen, slide the Notifications panel open, and then tap > Privacy.

Switching to Sleep mode

Briefly press the POWER button to turn off the display and switch to Sleep mode. HTC Desire SV also automatically goes into Sleep mode when it’s left idle for a while.

You can change the time before HTC Desire SV sleeps in the Display, gestures & buttons (or Display & buttons) settings.

Waking up from Sleep mode

To wake HTC Desire SV up manually, press the POWER button. You’ll need to unlock the screen.
Note: HTC Desire SV automatically wakes up when you have an incoming call.

Unlocking the screen

Pull the ring up to unlock the screen.
Note: If you've set up a screen lock, you'll be asked to provide your credentials before HTC Desire SV unlocks.
If you've set an event reminder or an alarm, you can drag or to the ring to snooze or dismiss the event or alarm.

Opening an app or folder from the lock screen

  • On the lock screen, drag an app or folder icon to the ring to unlock the screen and directly go to the app or folder.
    Tip: The shortcuts on the lock screen are the same ones on your Home screen's launch bar. To change the lock screen shortcuts, replace the apps or folders on the launch bar.
  • When there's a notification or info shown on the lock screen such as a missed call or new message, you can drag it to the ring to directly go to its app.
