    Keyboard stops docking when screen timeouts, any workarounds?

    Hi, as the title said, when the screen times out, the keyboard undocks. The problem here is that sometimes i'm transferring a large amount of files (photos from SD card of my camera, or movies from USB)
    and my regular timeout is set to 1 or two minutes... so when this happens, the transfer also stops...
    So every time i want to transfer a file, i have to set the screen timeout to "never" or 30 minutes

    is there a hidden option that can fix this? without needing to root preferably.

    I am having the same issue. I'm not copying files, but the keyboard simply stops working. I normally tap the "Home" button on the keyboard to wake up the device when it's connected. However, if I let it fall asleep, everything stops working. The worst part is that I have to flip the latch to disconnect the keyboard, then push it all back together again. Disappointing.

    My only workaround is to intentionally hit the "Lock" button in the top-right of the keyboard when I stop using it. This seems to keep the keyboard working properly for me and I do it anyways to save battery.
