prevent playbook from powering down

When  I am playing music on my Playbook, it powers down after a few minutes.   Is there a way to stop this?  Mood music that needs to be interacted with every 5 minutes is actually a bit of a mood-killer

 

TIA

Re: prevent playbook from powering down

It's the native app, and it was happening when I connected my Playbook to my Bose Wave system.   But I found the problem---it wasn't the Playbook, it was the crappy little connecting cable I was using.   Replaced and problem solved.

 

Thank you for responding

Re: prevent playbook from powering down

glad it was the cable and you found it was the cause

 

now go enjoy some good tunes

 

Also maybe look at the BlackBerry Music Gateway or 50 bucks you wont have to worry about wires any more.

Thanks, I will look at the gateway---does that work with an  older Bose system (circa 2007).   It doesn't have any USB ports that I can see, and I'm not aware that it features any wireless receiving capability.

USB not needed

 

if you have an audio input on the Bose then it will work.

 

nice part is using your tablet up to 30 feet away while enjoying the music.

 

Playbook has BT and teh gateway is a BT reciever that plugs into your Bose via an audio cable.
