When an Android Marshmallow smartphone or tablet is left unused for a while, 2 soft actions may be performed with them, provided they are activated. First, which is more likely to happen is the automatic screen lock to protect the smartphone from accidental usage by user or by some other person. The other thing which occurs is the daydream – a change on the screen of the smartphone or tablet.
