    Disable screen timeout?

    Did a search but couldn't find anything. Am wondering if it's possible to disable the screen timeout on the iPad2? I do animal portraits from photos and was hoping I could use mine as a digital photo frame for the duration of when I am drawing so that I could view photos on the ipad rather than pay to get prints every time.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure if this is exactly what you want, but if you go to settings > general > Auto-Lock, and set it to never, your iPad will not turn off. You should then be able to set a slideshow to go on to your hearts content...

    Hope that helps.
