    My new Lenovo Tab2 10.1" tablet forces standby after 1-30 minutes.

    There is no setting for NONE.

    I'm trying to use this as a calendar kiosk. I can't have the screen going black.

    Is there any app that could prevent the laptop from going dark?

    Go to Settings>Developer Options and see if you have a Stay Awake option--that should keep the screen on as long as it's plugged in and charging.

    If you don't see Developer Options, then go to Settings>About Tablet​ and tap Build Number 7 times.

    Thanks B. Diddy! The developer option does indeed prevent the display from turning off if plugged in. Very clever!

    However, after a minute with it plugged in, the screen dims to 50%.

    The tablet is for my 82 year old mom: it sits on an easel on the kitchen counter and displays calendar and to-do info. With her vision, the screen needs to remain at 100% brightness.

    So, is there any way to fake it out to not be "idle"?

    Thanks again for a very creative solution for the power-off problem!

    This app sounds exactly like what I need:

    Stay Alive! Keep screen awake


    I will try it out and report back.
