Post NXT Sleep Time

When you load a new program into the NXT from Robot C it automatically changes the sleep timer (how long the nxt will wait before turning it's self off) to 5 minutes.

Is there any way to change or stop this?

Go up to the upper menu and click view, then select preferences. There is a option to change the power down delay.

Good Luck

Mmmm Legos B-)

Currently RobotC updates the on-board sleep time with the value stored in RobotC preferences. This is done every time a connection is made between the PC and NXT.

Latest version of RobotC has an option to "do not update sleep time from PC" so that it will not be updated.

RobotC also has a neat feature for those of you using the rechargeable battery pack. The feature is essentially a flag that can be set to "do not go to sleep if a rechargeable battery is in use and the AC adaptor is connected."
