well this is irritating, I succesfully connect, type the command, get a confirmation but the speaker still turns itself off after 20 mins...... Ive done it many times, typed command twice, three times. Same result.
How are you putting the speaker into and out of setup mode? I wonder whether it is 'resetting' itself somehow. So close yet so far...!!

Just piling on, as it seems like there are several threads on this topic. I think the ability to disable the "auto-off" functionality on the different SoundTouch speakers is absolutely key! It seems like this feature would be tablestakes for wireless/smart speakers nowadays. If I was considering buying a wireless speaker system now, interoperability with voice assistants (Echo, GoogleHome, HomePod etc) would be at the very top of my list. It is strange that Soundlink speakers have this seemingly basic functionality, but the Soundtouch systems don't? Renew my faith, Bose! Let's get this feature in by Christmas!!
