How do I keep the playbook from sleeping?

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?

Check this link from crackberry. I have not tried it myself but it seems to work for others. http://forums.crackberry.com/f222/best-way-prevent-standby-stopping-browser-s-streaming-audio-radio-...

Re: How do I keep the playbook from sleeping?

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

Are you running an app for webcast streaming? My PB does not sleep when running an app-based one.

Re: How do I keep the playbook from sleeping?

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.
