On power on or auto restart/wake up from sleep (initated by kiosk browser) the tablet goes to the 'swipe to start' homepage, then kisokbrowser. How to make the tablet go straight to kioskbrowser?

I'm looking to know if anyone is aware of a way you could remotely restart the device? I think this would be really useful!


Many thanks in advance!

I would like a way to give a user the ability to exit the kiosk for a specified amount of time. Is this possible? I saw the ability to exit to an app but is there a way to just exit to give users the ability to access any app?

Would it be possible to add this function?

- delayScreensaver() (or some name that would make more sense)


Background: Sometimes people unknowingly (let's be generous) unplug my devices. Obviously I get an email about and can take action, but it's still a nuisance. However, as we do have javascript functions to detect when it happens (Android.isCharging()), I'm also displaying an alert telling them to plug in the power again. That's great. But the thing is that I also have screensaver enabled on my devices, and if that activates nobody can see the alert. So for my case I would be completely content if I could delay the screensaver for a while (and keep delaying as long as needed by calling the function repeatedly). I imagine it would simply be a case of resetting the screensaver countdown timer, or something to that effect.

I have two websites I would like to have locked down. I seen a setting to add whitelisted URLs as well as adding a URL tab, but I can't seem to get this to work properly.
