Hmm. Do you have a current version of Einstein? This used to be an issue, but Paul fixed it quite a while ago.

Fo rthe mobile devices, I have decided for Einstein to let Newton go to sleep while keeping the display static. When touching the screen, Einstein will wake Newton up again. This way, we have the advantage of not using any CPU, but still allowing the host to decide when to sleep. The only drawback is, that for example an on-screen clock will stop moving after a while.
