In this tutorial, we will learn how to keep your screen from turning off on an Android device. If you find it frustrating when your screen goes black while reading an article or watching a video, this guide is for you.

Method 1: Adjusting Display Settings

If you want to prevent your screen from turning off, follow these simple steps:

  • Step 1: Open the Settings app on your Android device.
  • Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “Display”.
  • Step 3: Look for the option called “Sleep” or “Screen timeout”.
  • Step 4: Tap on it and select a longer duration, such as “10 minutes” or “Never”.

This will ensure that your screen stays awake for a longer period of time before it turns off automatically.

Method 2: Using Developer Options

If the above method doesn’t work for you, you can try enabling the Developer Options on your Android device. Here’s how:

  • Step 1: Open the Settings app on your Android device.
  • Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “About phone” or “About tablet”.
  • Step 3: Find the build number and tap on it seven times to enable Developer Options. You will see a message saying “You are now a developer!”
  • Note: On some devices, the build number may be located under “Software information” or in a similar location.
  • Step 4: Go back to the main Settings screen and tap on “Developer options”.
  • Step 5: Scroll down and find the option called “Stay awake” or “Keep screen on while charging”.
  • Step 6: Toggle the switch to enable this option.

This will keep your screen from turning off as long as your device is charging or connected to a power source.


If you have followed the above methods and your screen still turns off, try these additional steps:

  1. Check for power-saving modes: Some Android devices have power-saving modes that can override your screen timeout settings. Look for any power-saving options in your device’s settings and disable them if necessary.
  2. Restart your device: A simple restart can sometimes fix software glitches that may be causing your screen to turn off unexpectedly.

By following these methods, you can ensure that your Android device’s screen stays awake for a longer duration or as long as it is charging. Enjoy uninterrupted reading, video playback, or any other activity without worrying about the screen turning off!
