    Default How do I prevent my Nexus 10 tablet from going to sleep when playing videos?

    I have my tablet connected to my TV via a HDMI cable in order to watch movies. But the screen goes to sleep after 30 minutes and the movie stops playing and I have to constantly wake it up each time.

    I went to SETTINGS - DISPLAY but it only offers a max of 30 minutes before it sleeps.

    How do I prevent my Nexus 10 tablet from going to sleep when playing videos?

    thanks

    What video playback software are you using. Some have a way to lock the screen on while playing a video.

    I don't see a app called movie tube. I see some things close but not exactly the same name.

    If your video player software doesn't have a setting to prevent the screen from going to sleep, you might try an app like KeepScreen. It provides a list of your apps and you can set which ones you want to keep the screen awake on when using.
