Oh great, I spend £1 to prove out something to help you but it's too much for you to pay to maybe get what you really need? That's very careful with money.

I should not have to pay a dime for an app to keep the darn tablet awake, it is a main functionality that should be part of power and screen management. A user should not have to use an app in the foreground to keep the screen from going dark and he should darn well not have to pay for one to do so.

Dunno, haven't got Osmand or had to stare at a map for more than 5 minutes at a time.

It's not my app. It does work as a browser that stays awake. It does not keep awake in the background as 

I already said. 

Anyone too tight to spend a pound or a  buck, can't read, or who does not like free advice can go and do one.

Well I use Magellan Compass 3.12, and this one will not let the screen go off as long as it is seen on the screen, even just part of it, so if you are using it for a long time, be sure that you have a power supply for the Playbook

Re: Stand by after 5 minutes

I told you once, I'll tell again...
makes total sense .

I have to use Maggelan or idontknowwhatstupidapp to keep the screen on.

Again: makes total sense.

Re: Stand by after 5 minutes

So that's it?? Standby / timeout after 5 minutes max!

 

Hmmm, I would have hoped the last update fixed it because there have been enough gripes and threads about this for years....

 

Can't find an app that worksaround either. :No:
