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.
Disable 30 min time-out before going to sleep
I want to attach the HoloLens to a rig and want it run for ~8h unattended, powered from the USB power supply. (No human interaction for more than 30 min)
However, there is time-out in the device portal, under Sleep-Settings, that only offers the values for "When plugged in, turn off after" from 3 min to 30 min.
I need to set the sleep time on the order of 8 hours or infinite. There seems to be no difference for Developer Edition and Commercial Edition.
Microsoft, can you please change this? Or is there a workaround?
