    I bet it's playing in the background all the time and when you turn the screen off, it activates the screen. I had a game that did that, drove me crazy too. Try going to the task manager, and really turning off whatever video player or other app that is active. Or, you can do a complete power off and that should do it too. Please let us know the final solution.

    Default Re: demo video starts playing when power button is pressed

    This demonstration video that starts up on it's own is the one that came with the tablet. I remember seeing it on the store unit. The only way to exit out of it is by hitting the back button. Then my password screen comes up and I can use my tablet.

    The demo video doesn't show up as a running application, so there is nothing to close. Completely power down doesn't make and difference either. There must be some little check box somewhere to disable it, but I haven't been able to find.

    If I can find the video file, I will try deleting out but I suspect it is embedded in the system somewhere.

    Still looking got for the solution.

    Found it! There is a screensaver app that comes with the galaxy note 10.1

    There is an option to run the screen saver when the screen times out or the screen is turned off. Just select the Screensaver app, uncheck the box that says enable screen saver.

    Thanks

    Thanks. They must have an anti-marketing department to come up with something like this.

    Thank you so much! I was ready to bring the darned thing back to the store. Samsung shouldn't do evil things like this. For a minute there, I thought I had mistakenly bought an Apple product.

    Not in the settings menu app, go to the on screen apps and widgets.

    Default Re: demo video starts playing when power button is pressed

    Thank you, thank you, and thank you. You solved my problem on my wife's galaxy tab pro 8.4
    I was the one who caused the problem and of course I was the one who was in trouble because of it. The Smart Cover would not work and the battery would drain all the time. After finding the screensaver and shutting it off, the cover now works and everything seems to be back to normal. How I ever turned it on is a mystery to me.
    Once again, thank you.

    I love my tablet but I was ready to smash it with a hammer if the demo didn't stop playing... it's under warranty. The advice given on this forum stopped the hideous power draining screen saver and restored my sanity.
