    I was streaming a football match on my Galaxy Note 10.1(with JB update) for the first time the other day, but the note kept going to sleep.
    I turned off the eye/face detection, went to the timeout value expecting to find a "Never" option but the longest it can be set to is just 30 min.
    Is there a way to stop it going to sleep just while I want to watch something like this.
    I have looked at all the setting options but can't find anything that would do this
    Cheers guys and thanks for any points on this

    Two reasons
    One. I don't want to have to hold the tablet for two hours.
    Two. I intend to buy the HDMI adaptor (if this issue can be sorted) to display on my TV, so I would not be holding the tablet at all.

    Apps like youtube and the media player should override this, perhaps you could write to the developer and recommend this?

    I am streaming live from the web, so this is not an option. I was wondering that if I plug in a hdmi adapter, would this disable the sleep mode ? Only problem is I would have to pay out about
