marcofugaro has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/system-wake-lock:

== Use case: develop websites with real-time updates on mobile devices wirelessly ==
Let's say you're a website developer and you are developing a website both for desktop and mobile, and you're previewing the website live on both your laptop and your phone.

Your setup looks like this:

Your phone is not attached with a cord to the laptop, rather you access the local website link through a local network URL. 
(This is very common, tools like [create-react-app](https://github.com/facebook/create-react-app) print this to the console:

You leave your phone on your stand while you write code, the auto-refresh feature will take care of updating it.

However, after a bit, the screen turns off, and you're forced to go into the settings of the phone to remove the screen turn-off time. This is annoying since after you're done, you probably will forget to change the setting back and your phone will not go to sleep by itself.

#### This would be a really useful job for this API.


[Figma users can already do this thanks to the figma app](https://help.figma.com/hc/en-us/articles/360039829534-Preview-designs-and-prototypes-with-Figma-Mirror-app), which is native and can of course access the WakeLock API.
