  Hi Frantisek,

probably you are right, because in

scanning when that occurs

I had a look at the Maemo Mapper source:

static void
osso_cb_hw_state(osso_hw_state_t *state, gpointer data)
            _must_save_data = FALSE;
        else if(_conn_state > RCVR_OFF)

It seem like this is the place I have to patch if I want Maemo-Mapper to
keep recording GPS track info even when I close the cover.

  regards, Armin.
