Running a Android App while the screen is black

I'm trying to run a android app while the screen is black, i used a service and i tryed to add also a WakeLock of the type "PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK".

The service play a song and save data from the accelerometer to the db, but when i press the red phone button to make the screen black, it play the song but it don't save data to the db. Have anyone a idea of why it don't save data to the db?

Tnk's

With this you ensure that the code between acquire() and release() are executed even if the phone is in stanby mode, since the cpu will stay active.

PowerManager pm = (PowerManager) getSystemService(Context.POWER_SERVICE);
PowerManager.WakeLock wl = pm.newWakeLock(PowerManager.PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK, "My Tag");
wl.acquire();
..CPU will stay on during this section..
wl.release();
