By default, most Android phones turn off by themselves in order to conserve battery life. If you are annoyed by this fact, then you can stop Android Phone from turning off automatically.
Android Phone Turning Off Automatically
Most Android phones will automatically go to sleep after around 30s to 1 minute of inactivity. While this feature does conserve battery life, it can be really annoying when you are trying to use your phone hands free and have to keep tapping to keep it awake.
Luckily, it is easy to stop Android phone from turning off automatically and this can be done from the Settings menu on your Android Phone.
Note: Unlike iPhone, most Android phones do not have the option to keep the screen always turned on for an infinite amount of time. However most Android phones will allow you to keep the screen on for 30 minutes, which should be more than enough to use your phone hands free.
Stop Android Phone From Turning Off Automatically
Follow the steps below to stop Android Phone from turning off automatically.
1. Open Settings on your Android Phone
2. On the Settings screen, scroll down and tap on Display option located under “Device” sub-heading.
3. On the Display screen, tap on the Sleep option.
Note: On Samsung Phones and some other Android devices, the sleep option will appear as Screen timeout (See image below)
4. From the popup menu that appears, tap on 30 minutes.
On stock Android devices, the longest duration up to which you can keep the screen turned ON is 30 minutes. This should be good enough, in case you are trying to use your phone hands free.
Depending on what your device says, tap on the longest available option, so that you can maximize the duration of time that your Android phone’s screen stays on.
Sleep or Screen Timeout Option Not Available?
On some Android devices (like Xiaomi phones), the Sleep or Screen Timeout Option is not available under “Display Settings”. For some reason, this option is hidden in Lock Screen and Security screen.
1. Open Settings on your Android phone.
2. On the Settings screen, scroll down and tap on Lock Screen and Password option located under “System & Device” section (See image below)
3. On the next screen, tap on Sleep or Screen timeout option.
4. On the popup that appears, tap on 30 minutes or choose the longest available option.
