How to use Knox Manage to keep screen on when device is plugged in


  • Knox Manage (KM) Kiosk mode
  • Android Enterprise enrollment type
  • Devices running Android 6.0 and above


For deployments where devices may be permanently plugged in and charging, you may want to force the device screen to stay on.

Previously only available in Knox Configure, this knowledge base article shows you how to configure the Setting Plugged in Screen On policy to keep device screens on with Knox Manage (KM).

NOTE—This policy is only available for devices running Kiosk mode.

How do I keep my device's screen on when it's plugged in and charging?

  1. In your KM console, click Profile.
  2. Create or modify a profile with Android Enterprise set as the enrollment type.
  3. Under Android Enterprise, select Kiosk.
  4. Navigate to the Setting Plugged in Screen policy, select Apply, then select a charging type.
  5. Click Save & Assign to assign the profile to a group or organization.

After the policy is enabled and the device is connected to a charger, the screen stays on until it is disconnected.
