    We have a new XYBoard 10.1, and we are playing around with connecting it to our TV/Stereo via the HDMI output. Seems to work well, except we have not been able to figure out how to stop the tablet from going to sleep after 30 minutes.

    We are using the tablet in the Motorola HD Dock, and the apps we're using are Pandora, Netflix, and Google Music.

    Any suggestions for how to prevent the tablet from going to sleep while in this mode?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, I would have thought that's where I'd be able to disable timeout. Unfortunately, it only gives me a series of discrete timeout options, with the longest being 30 minutes.

    OK, found a solution. It's Settings > Apps > Development > Stay Awake (check it).
