How can I stop my iOS device from going to sleep mode

The iPad will automatically go into sleep mode after two minutes of inactivity. But what if you don't want your iOS device to go to sleep? The last thing you want is for your device to go to sleep mode when you are half way through your interview.

1. First, go into the iPad's settings. This is the icon that looks like gears. 


2. Choose General settings from the list on the left side of the screen.

3. You will find the Auto-Lock setting midway down the list. This setting allows you to choose how long the iPad waits before going to sleep.


4. Choosing the Auto-Lock feature will bring you to a new screen with the option to auto sleep after 2, 5, 10 or 15 minutes. You can also turn the feature off completely by choosing Never, but remember to change it back to your preferred time. If you have the setting on Never and put your iPad down without manually putting it to sleep, the iPad will stay awake until it runs completely out of battery power.
