    There is an app in Play Store called as Stay Alive, does exactly this job. Helps me a ton when I am doing reading. I wonder if there is any such app for iPad. This is iPad 1.

    Thanks in advance.

    No, afraid not. At least not without jailbreaking, which is not yet available for iOS 7.

    This is iPad 1, so stuck at iOS 5.3.3
    What options are there with jailbreaking?

    I'm not sure, since I don't jailbreak. I just know that if it is available it will require a jailbreak.

    I recommend you go to the iPad Hacking area of this forum and read the sticky posts. That should catch you up on the current state of jailbreaking. If you are visiting via the website, sticky notes are at the top of the thread list, in a light blue color. If you are using the iOS app, they should be in a separate tab above the thread list.

    If that, or some of the other recent posts don't answer your question, ask it there. Or maybe a more knowledgeable person will wander by and help you out here.

    Good luck.

    The highest iOS that can be put on an iPad 1 is iOS 5.1.1 - and that version is jailbreak able. See this thread for the various tools you can use to jail break that iPad:

    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24377-jailbreaking-methods-ipad.html

    Once it's jail broken, there are several tweaks you can use to prevent the screen from going to sleep - ones such as SleepDepriver or Activator (which you can use to stop the screen from dimming).

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks. I wondered about that, but did not bother to check. It's been long enough since I had an iPad 1 to worry about I figured I'd just forgoten an update or two. :)
