USB or Bluetooth Keyboard input lag in Android apps (idling?)

When using Android apps like ConnectBot or Termux on ML2, input from USB or bluetooth keyboard quickly starts to lag by one or more keystrokes. Sometimes moving/keeping the controller pointed on the Android app window overcomes this lag — seemingly keeping the app awake enough so that keystrokes come in real time. But this is awkward.

Is this lag a result of some power-saving/optimization setting that we can change? I see there are some power management settings but have not been able to find a setting or combination of settings that resolves this. Please advise.

(While developing and testing it would be ideal to open an SSH session to servers from the headset.)

Thank you.
