Nokia music player question

Lumia 810  Windows 8

 

Is it possible to keep the music player active?

 

When I go to the gym I want to be able to see the music player while running without fumbling with buttons after it times out and turns the screen off

 

I know this will drain my battery faster but don't care about that

 

Thanks

-Mik

All you need to do is press the lock key on the right hand side to turn screen back on.

If  i have helped at all a click on the white star below would be nice thanks.



Now using the Lumia 1520

hi Raybz,

what you are after is the Setting for the time-out of the screen. Go to Settings > Lock Screen > Screen times out after > Never.

weird that there has been reports of it varying between handsets Jimmy..... would have thought they would all have the same gamut of options for it.
