Change Idle Timeouts for Power-Saving Mode

You can update the period of time the phone is idle before the screen turns off.

You can specify different timeouts for office hours (Office Hours Idle Timeout) and non-office hours (Off Hours Idle Timeout). By default, the Office Hours Idle Timeout is much longer than the Off Hours Idle Timeout.

You can also specify a separate timeout period that applies after you press a key or tap the screen. This is called the User Input Idle Timeout. You can choose to set a higher User Input Idle Timeout than the Office Hours and Off Hours Idle Timeouts so that when you're actively using the phone, power-saving mode doesn't initiate as often.

Tip: If you press a key or tap the screen, the idle timeout period that applies (User Input Idle Timeout or Office Hours/Off Hours Idle Timeout) is the timeout with the highest value.
