This post will show you how to disable the shutdown warnings that appear on your Android TVs in a few easy steps. You will also be able to remove the screensaver from your TV once and for all.

After sitting for several hours watching TV, it is possible that a warning appears on the screen telling you that it will turn off in a few moments if you do not press a button. This, in principle, would not suppose a problem since the only thing that we would have to do is to press that button and to continue enjoying our marathon of series. But there are times when the remote control is either too far away or has disappeared, so when we want to press the button to avoid the automatic shutdown, the TV will have reacted and turned off the screen. What to do in these cases? The answer might be as simple as Disable the automatic shutdown warning and other saving measures on your Android TV.

All TVs usually offer such power-saving options to prevent them from staying on all night. How many times have you fallen asleep on the couch and the TV has been on for hours? Or maybe your pet has climbed on the couch and inadvertently pressed all the buttons on the remote causing it to turn on. What would happen if you didn’t have this power-saving feature enabled? It would be on until you got home. However, while it has its advantages, the disadvantages are likely to outweigh the disadvantages.

That is why, below, we tell you how you can remove those automatic shutdown warnings on TVs with Android TV and other energy-saving options. However, today we will focus on this software, which is built into most smart TVs today, so it will only be useful if you have a Smart TV with Android TV OS.

How to remove the automatic shutdown warning in Android TV

The process is really simple to perform, so it will hardly cost you to do it. You just have to go to the settings panel and enter the sections that we indicate below. Once you follow the steps, this annoying warning will disappear from your life.

  • Click on the settings panel of your TV.
  • Select the ‘device preferences‘ tab.
  • Now go to the ‘Power saving‘ section.
  • Here you will see several options, either set a longer idle time for the banner to come up or turn it off completely.

With these steps, we will say goodbye to the automatic shutdown, although we also have the option to remove other energy savings of the TV as, for example, the screensaver, which can also be annoying on occasion. To deactivate this option we will have to follow the following steps:

  • Open the TV settings panel as we have already done above.
  • Select the ‘device preferences‘ tab.
  • Enter the ‘screen saver‘ section.
  • Adjust the time or deactivate it completely. 

And these are the simple steps you will have to take to remove both the automatic TV shutdown warning and to remove the screensaver. Depending on the TV you will have more power-saving options. You can see everything you can manage in TV settings.
