I would like to know how make sure Amazon fire TV Stick screen saver does not stop after certain time frame. I have the screensaver to start after 10 minutes and then it starts playing when there is no activity on the screen meaning I am not watching anything but then it stops after an unknown period of time. I have a lot of pictures in my Amazon Photos which should not be a problem for the screen saver to to keep on playing endlessly until I am ready to watch something on FireTV Stick. Can someone help me please fix this problem?

Thank you,

Basem Khawaja, R.Ph.

the fire tv stick does have a sleep timer that may or may not be in the menus. To disable it you need to edit the operating system (not for the faint of heart) or sideload a keep alive app that tricks the system into thinking that there is activity.. On a PC we would call this a mouse jiggler app.

is there any easier way to accomplish this task without having to mess with these apps? It is a bit too challenging for me and I am not very comfortable with them.


Thank you,

unfortunately not.. I have a 'SMART' tv that I can't turn off the eco settings either and have to hit the volume up down or press a button periodically or it shuts off.
