Wireless display keeps going to home screen

I am using my roku as a wireless display from a PC running windows 10. It connects fine, but after a while the TV goes back to the home screen instead of displaying what is on the desktop. I have turned off all sleep setting on TV and computer. Any ideas?

Re: Wireless display keeps going to home screen


Three things I can think of on the Roku that might affect this:

"Settings > Network > Bandwidth saver" -- turn this off

"Settings > Theme (may take a while to load) > Screensaver start time" -- choose "Disable screen saver"

If your Roku has a "Settings > System > Power" menu option, go in there and under "Auto power savings" make sure "After 20 minutes of no interaction" is UNchecked.
