One of my most common uses of the Go is as a video streamer. Apps like Netflix, Hulu and YouTube all feature content that run well past the 15 minute mark. Most of the time I watch these type streams, I’m reclined and typically still. It is EXTREMELY annoying when the auto-sleep feature kicks in and powers down the device. The NEVER option worked beautifully in preventing this issue but, for some unknown reason it has been rolled back. Please re-enable this feature...it was super useful!

I'm thinking about returning mine over this. I got the thing to watch movies and TV on. That is just not possible on this without the option to turn off auto sleep.

Yes! We bought our Oculus for use at events and don't want to give customers the controller (as we don't want this to get lost). Because of the sleep mode, we used to be able to leave the content running and they could simply pick up the Oculus and watch the video. Now we have to have someone on hand to start the content again every time someone picks it up which just isn't feasible! The Oculus totally isn't fit for our use any more and we will be considering alternatives.

I can't fathom why the Never option was removed. For a decide designed primarily to consume media, having the thing sleep every few minutes that a user isn't moving is absurd. WTAF!

That's a shame. This is a media device and they cancel this purpose. Jesus.

Please can Oculus give us an option to turn the auto-sleep never back on?

The disabling of the Never option really renders the Go useless as a media device, if you want to just sit back or lie down and enjoy a movie. I cannot fathom the mental logic meltdown that was happening when this decision was made. Please do bring the Never option back!

Amazing - there are so many threads on reddit, the oculus forums and on different other sites, where people are trying to figure out why this stupid removal with the 3.6 firmware has been done. The people are setting up servers and sending strings via adp, trying to keep the Go alive. I 3D printed myself a console with a mechanical button that pushes the volume keys every 14 minutes in the hope of getting a workaround done. And nobody from oculus/facebook cares about this issue. My Headset is totally useless since March 2019. PLEASE BRING THIS FUNCTION BACK!

The new option of 4hrs in the 9.0 fw is no solution if the headset turns black after 5min of physical inactivity...
