I'm trying to test the behavior of my Android app when the OS goes in Doze mode. I'm using a gennymotion emulator running Android API 25. The application launches an through the using the method with type RTC_WAKEUP. I set the alarm to fire after 1 minute (only for testing purposes).I succeed in putting the emulator in IDLE state by running the suggested command. When the device is IDLE I'm still able to see the being launched by the alarm. This should not be the expected behavior according to the docs. I was expecting the opposite(since according to the docs, setExact() is not triggered if the device is on doze mode). I have even tested this on a real device (running Android 6) and getting the same results.

Is this a bug? Or am I missing something?
