I own the 2s and use at home. How can I bypass the constant need to sign in. I just want the whiteboard. Does developer mode expose any options for this?

Hello @soundneedle ,

 

You can set the session to never expire so it will resume it when you return. 

 

Thank you,

Cezar

@Cezar Cretuis that the same as setting "return to welcome screen" to never and allow users to resume? thought I'd tried that maybe not.

Hi @soundneedle,

 

yes, it's the same option. 

Bare in mind that this will block the device from restarting during maintenance hours. Just make sure that you end the session when no longer needed

 

Thanks

Hi Cezar. When setting it to never return to the welcome screen the display never turns off—-even though display off is set to 1 minute and p is set to 5 minutes. Seems there’s no way to prevent sign out unless you never want the screen to turn off.
