A real bug bear of mine for a while has been that whilst controlling my Fire TV using ADB, the screen will occassionally go to sleep whilst I’m watching something.
Thankfully, it’s a quick 30 second job to disable the sleep mode on the TV. You’ll need to have ADB running and connected to your Fire TV (I connect over WiFi)
Note: If you only have one device connected to ADB, you can skip the
adb -s <device name> part and just use
adb -s <device name> shell settings put secure sleep_timeout 0
That’s it, no more Fire TV going to sleep on me!
