THE FIRST ALARM CLOCK TO DO GOOD DEEDS
Power Sleep functions like an alarm clock. When you go to sleep, your smartphone or tablet requests a data package from the SIMAP server (Similarity Matrix of Proteins) at the University of Vienna and starts calculating. When your alarm rings, the process ends and the package is recorded in the SIMAP database. Fully automatically and for free – Doing good has never been easier.
Your network operator may charge you to download the app and data packages via a mobile data network or WiFi. Please ask your mobile wireless or internet provider about rates and data volumes.
HOW IT WORKS
Power Sleep uses BOINC, a technology for distributed computing, as the basis for using the unused processor power of your smartphone or tablet only when you don''t need it.
To ensure everything runs smoothly:
Remember that your smartphone or tablet must be connected to a charger and switched on
You must be connected to a WiFi network so that Power Sleep can start calculating
Please ask your internet provider about rates and data volumes
You have the possibility to change your standard settings so that the data packages can also be calculated via the mobile data network
Please ask your wireless provider about costs and data volumes
Exceeding your data volume can lead to additional costs
The average amount of data transmitted is 1 MB per package for download and about half the size for upload
The estimated duration for the calculation takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour per data package – the longer you sleep, the more data packages can be calculated
All functions remain available during the use of Power Sleep
Power Sleep functions on Android smartphones and tablets from version 2.3 with ARM processors onwards. For optimal use, we recommend smartphones and tablets from Android version 4.1.
Samsung and the University of Vienna do not collect any of your personal data. Your processor power is used solely for the benefit of scientific research.

FOR CONNECTION PROBLEMS
An app update can cause connection failures with the SIMAP server. To solve the problem, the connection must be re-initialized for the new app version. Please restart your smartphone or tablet and start Samsung Power Sleep again.
