How to message user while Roku is in sleep mode?

My rendezvous style registration code has a 15-minute time out. The app sits in a loop waiting for the account link, polling every 10 seconds, as documents suggested. The app is supposed to show user a message in a roMessageDialog when the code is expired after 15 minutes.
The problem is that by default the Roku goes to sleep after 5 minutes. The timer and loop, work fine in sleep mode until it gets to the part it's supposed to show the roMessageDialog and the app dies at that point! It is not responsive after Roku is woken up and the only was to get out of that state is by pushing the home button on the remote! I'm sure I'm not the only one dealing with this issue, but I didn't find any references to it. I appreciate your help.
