How to Change Screen Timeout on Android

In this post, we’ll see how to change the screen timeout on Android. In this instance, I’m using Android Pie. Let’s get started.


  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Hit Display > Advanced > Sleep (which you can find between “Wallpaper” and “Auto-rotate screen“).
  3. In the popup, choose the amount of time you prefer. The available ones are – 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, and 30 minutes.

That’s it. All done.


If you’ve enabled “Developer options” on your Android device, then you can make your device not to go to sleep while charging. To achieve that, go to Developer options and enable the “Stay awake” option.
