I want to listen to a radio station's webcast stream. Playbook is connected to power, not running off battery. How do I keep it from going to sleep every 5 minutes and stopping the audio stream?
Solved! Go to Solution.

You can prevent the playbook stand by up to five minutes,
go to settins, tap in the screen icon, from there you can:
Turn off the screen automatically
On the status bar, tap > Screen. Change the Backlight Time-out field.
Enter standby mode automatically
On the status bar, tap > Screen. Change the Standby Time-out field.
Have a nice day

therein is the problem, i don't want it to sleep in 5 minutes, I don't want it to sleep at all. I want to listen to the audio web stream without touching the screen every 5 minutes.

This appears to work (crackberry article), followed those instructions, showcase in the settings. Then that app keeps the playbook from sleeping. It's a workaround but I wouldn't call this a fix, RIM has some work to do on this...

Well glad it works for now at least. And I agree the PlayBook still needs alot of work it has only had 3 major software updates so far though. Hopefully the next one is a large one.
