Auto power savings: 20 minutes is too short!

"Auto power savings"

20 minutes is too short for our usage. Why can't there be options? Something like a choice between 20, 40, or 60 minutes?

Roku Express 4K+ 3941R (2021)

No response so far.  Is there an official way to submit this to Roku for consideration?  The concept is good, but there needs to be user-selectable times.

@Boz

Thanks for the post.

Please be aware that the newest Roku OS 10.5 has added a new Power item in Settings > System menu for some Roku models. If you have this Power item, under Auto power savings see if deactivating After 20 minutes of no interaction fixes the problem.

Please keep us posted what you find out.


Thanks,
Danny

"see if deactivating After 20 minutes of no interaction fixes the problem."

 

How in the world could this POSSIBLY "fix" anything that I talked about in my post?

 

No, "deactivating After 20 minutes of no interaction" does NOT add other time length options.

 

Please explain how you thought it might!

@RokuDanny-R , I agree with @Boz, 20 minutes is way too short. Please submit a feature enhancement to increase the time length of the Auto power savings. It would be good to allow the user to select from several auto power savings values (i.e. 20 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, or 4 hours) or else allow the user to simply enter an auto power time length in hours and minutes. This is be the ultimate in flexibility. I think many user would appreciate this feature enhancement. Thank you!

@RokuDanny-R , are you going to help, as suggested by @Brian-17 , or not?  Thanks.

Re: Auto power savings: 20 minutes is too short!

I like the idea of the fairly new Auto Power Off setting, but I do not like the only option is to be turned off or to be turned on for the length of 20 minutes. There should be options longer than 20 minutes, such as 1 hour, that the user can choose from. If I get up to cook something or do some laundry, 20 minutes is just long enough that it shuts everything down and I have to turn it on and make my way back to where I was in my app/program. We need more reasonable time options. (I currently have the option off because it is too much of a hassle.)

Is this being worked on?

A moderator replied with a completely confusing response, seemingly posted without fully reading or comprehending the OP, and on top of that seems to have disappeared, even after other users have posted in support of my original suggestion / request.

Can somebody please provide an update?  Thanks!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the posts.

You have either the option to allow the power saver after 20 minutes or you can disable this feature in Settings as I've posted previously. There are no options to change the time for this feature.


Thanks,
Danny
