Any way to stop S6 Active from dozing?

I've got an S6 Active and a specialized app from blackberry that opens a VPN to move email data. When doze kicks in it shuts down the VPN. I have tried disabling all apps in the battery optimization section but that doesn't work. Had same exact problem on BB Priv (handset). I found a program called "disable doze" in the play store which (on the BB Priv) fixed my problem straight away. It basically stops the phone from going into doze at all thus keeping the VPN app alive and connected. I tried that app on the S6 Active and it did not work. I just tried another app today called "sleep of death killer" which is supposed to keep phones from going to sleep but it did not work either.

Any other ideas/apps that might prevent my S6 Active from dozing and crushing my persistant VPN?

I'm told this problem will be fixed in Nougat but who knows when I'll see that on the S6 Active. I'd like to be able to use the phone before then.

Thanks,
