How to Keep it Awake

Hi All.

I have a no-name android tablet running version 10. I use it solely as a remote for a Ring Doorbell. The problem is that the tablet goes to sleep after 30 minutes, which is the longest length of time in Settings. I've loaded 2 different "keep it awake" apps, but the tablet still goes to sleep after 30 minutes.

I'm fairly new to Android, so I can't be sure that I'm not overlooking some restriction in Settings. The articles I've read don't seem to address version 10 - just older versions.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks

You're not overlooking any restrictions. The option to have the device never sleep was removed around Android 8, so unfortunately you only have 30 minutes now. If you had a brand name tablet you might have been able to find a custom ROM that supported the device never sleeping, but since you don't, your chances of finding a custom ROM for it are virtually nil.

Thanks. Depressing, but I'll just have to adjust to 30 minutes.

Thanks again.
