Setting to disable iOS Sleep Timer


Since I use Drafts as my primary task manager, I’d love if there was a setting to disable the iOS Sleep Timer and leave my iPad on indefinitely.

I use the app Notability for document reviews and it has this feature. It’s nice because I don’t have to tap the screen every few minutes to prevent sleep.


I think this should be a standard feature in every notes app and there are a surprising lack of apps that support this. It must be difficult to do or something because why aren’t more developers implementing a toggle to disable the sleep timer when their app is active.


Not hard technically speaking. I put it on the list to consider. Not something I’ve been asked for many times, but I’ve seen the usefulness of it more lately when using the app for tappable task lists - like at the grocery store.
