Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Long-term usage on a convention, overheat and seelp mode?

We plan to use the Samsung Odyssey Device on a convention for approximately 9 hours a day. Other than Oculus for example the Device does not seem to shut off when no user is using it, so the first concern is overheating.

One concern is the automatic sleep mode. Is there another way to re-activate the device other than by clicking on the button on the desktop? Or is there a way to disable automatic sleep mode?

There seems to be no way to detect if someone is using the device (in our app) and the device does not go in stand by if the device is unmounted. So one concern is overheating. Is there any data available if the device does handle a long term usage and is there a way to enable standbymode, which can easily be re-activated without access to the PC.
