One of the options that a TV with Android TV allows is to set up a screen saver for those times when, with the TV on, we are not using it. A good solution especially in OLED models to avoid burns and in this sense we will see how we can establish different activation times.

For those times when we want the screensaver to skip and prevent it from activating too early or taking too long, just scroll through the TV settings to reduce or increase the time that passes before that the screen saver is not activated.

At the most inconvenient time

The screen saver activates static or dynamic backgrounds, it depends on our preferences, which causes us to lose sight of the screen of the application we are using, although this does not affect the times when we let’s watch, for example, a video streaming in applications like Netflix, Prime Video …

That said, it can be annoying if the screensaver pops up at the most unexpected time or the reverse happens and takes too long to activate.

To modify (increase or decrease) the time it takes to activate the screen saver on a television with Android TV or Google TV, just go to the cogwheel which facilitates access to the “Settings” of the TV.

Depending on the brand, the menu may vary slightly, but it’s usually found in the “Device Preferences” section and look inside for the “Screen Saver” option.

At this point, you can choose between several screen savers depending on which ones are installed at the factory or which we were able to add later.

We can also run a test to see what it looks like, choose when the device will go to sleep and what interests us, determine when the screen saver is activated.

As a general rule, we are limited to fixed periods of 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour and 2 hours. It is up to the user to determine when it is activated, a time limit that in my case I set at 5 minutes.
