    I solved this problem with Automate:

    1. Download Automate from GooglePlay
    2. Go to Automate Community (upright corner)
    3. Search "Bluetooth screen on" flow and download it



    It is a small flow so Free users can use it also.
    I used the "Wearable bluetooth headset" connection to trigger the so-called "keep-alive function" but you can just replace it with a timer (Delay block).

    Also Automate is fun and useful, under my name (Tamás Panyi) you can find some other may-useful flows and you can make others also

    Hello, I've solved this issue by completing just a few basic steps.( note, only works when plugged in or wireless charging) There is a hidden menu in android called developer options. I've included the link but it is extremely easy to enable. Once you've enabled the menu open settings, scroll all the way down to developer options, enable the "stay awake" option. This will keep your home or most importantly for me lock screen on while it is receiving a charge. Hope this helps.

    It's ridiculous that Samsung hasn't fixed this yet. If I'm actively typing my password (which is long for security reasons), I shouldn't have to race like mad to type it in quickly enough to beat the screen timeout. Most of the time, the screen times out juuussstt as I'm hitting the enter key.

    In general those kinds of timeouts are more for periods of inactivity right? The phone should give the user as long as they need to enter their password, regardless of the screen timeout setting value.

    What you just wrote implies truly unlimited time. It would make more sense to set timeout from the last character you type instead of the first. Then you can type an arbitrarily long password, but the phone can still time out. If you drop it one character short of finishing the password and Dr Evil finds it later, he won't be able to steal ONE MILLION DOLLARS from your bank account.
