-excuse the reply, I only saw the answer with using Pluto as a channel-never noticed the bandwidth saver-THANK YOU for that! I can't sleep without tv either & have no cable hookup in my bedroom

Turning off the bandwidth saver doesn't do anything... That DOES NOT work

I think it depends on which streaming app you are using within Roku. For some apps I use (for example, Philo and Amazon Prime), turning off the Bandwidth Saver stopped the timeouts. For others (YouTube TV and Disney Plus), I still get asked “Are you still watching?” and the app will time out if I don’t click YES with my remote.

Thanks! Why couldn't they call it inactivity timeout and make it easier to find?

The channel itself could be timing out to save THEIR bandwidth. Really I think Roku should require all apps to follow the bandwidth saver setting.
