Android 2.1 Sensors with screen off

I am writing an application for the Nexus One where I require the
accelerometer and/or the orientation sensor to remain active while the
screen is off. I have taken a partial wake lock, but it is quite clear
that as soon as the screen goes off any sensor updates stop.

I have searched this forum and it appears this was an issue previously
which was fixed in Cupcake. Is this a new bug in 2.1 or is this a
limitation of the handset (or even a deliberate design decision?)

Thanks in advance,

Hi guys,

Is it possible to for android to dynamically change its layout?  Like
for instance, if I want to be able to dynamically add a new button to
a toolbar and have the toolbar shrink/grow based on how many buttons
are in it, is it possible with android's current sdk?
