SoundDock Portable goes to sleep?

Couldn't pair my SoundDock via Bluetooth, so I went old school and connected to my Echo Dot with an Aux cable. However, the SoundDock appears to go into some sort of sleep mode after a period of non use. Giving a command to Alexa is met with silence unless I unplug and plug in the SoundDock. Very frustrating. Is there a solution?

Hi JBRANCH56,

 

Thanks for the post, and welcome to the community.

 

The system will turn off after 30 minutes of inactivity.  This will happen if there is no audio playing and there has been no interaction with the system by the user.

 

The only work around for this would be to have the Echo Dot send a signal every 30 minutes (or less) to the SoundDock Portable.

 

Let us know if you have any other questions.
