Hello.
I am using VLC Streamer to copy my movie from PC to iPad. Copy process might take a while. I noticed that when I close the cover iPad falls a sleep and stop copying very soon. I just wondering if there is an option when I could disable it? I mean I want to leave my iPad charged, close magnetic cover but prevent it from falling asleep or turning off.
Is it possible?
Thanks

Yes it's certainly possible.Go to; settings-general-auto lock-never.That will keep your iPad from going to sleep and stoping the download.If it's a large download,you may want to plug in your iPad.When the download is complete,you can restore the auto lock to its previous setting.To stop the smart cover from putting the iPad to sleep and stopping the download when closed,go to;settings-general-iPad cover lock/unlock,and slide the button to off.Remember to change it back when the download is complete.
