    Hi all, I have a couple of questions, hope you can help.
    1-After power up the Lenovo Tablet A10, the screen appears for about 1 minute and then disappears and I have to keep hitting the on button. How do I change the display so that it doesn't disappear after 1 minute, stays on longer?
    2 - I have music stored online at Amazon and want to use a "player" on the desktop vs. the AMZ player to play music. Is that possible and how?

    1. If you want it to stay on until you tell it to turn off, there's a setting for that too. A little more elaborate, though.
    2. Only if you have purchased it. Prime downloads no.

    Thanks, #1 is solved.
    #2 the question is, can I play music through the Tablet without streaming it from an internet storage service like AMZ?

    The answer would be no. Purchased music can be downloaded in MP3 format (the last time I checked at least).
    You can download Prime music but it is in a format that is only readable by the proprietary music player. Read about it here:

    Let me amend that a little. Yes, you can play music on your tablet without streaming. AMZ Prime allows you to download and listen "off-line", but you cannot use any other music player other than Amazon's.


    Or I may be confused because you have essentially split #2 into two very different questions.
    If you could elaborate.
