The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.
Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.
Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.
Terminus worked, I was able to send the command via telnet and received the appropriate response that it was disabled. However, the speakers are still timing out and turning off.

Thank you very much. Your solution is the solution for many of us that want an aux input to never time out.
Your solution is not just for ST10, which I don't have. It is the same underlying OS on the ST20 and ST30. I used your telnet command to turn off standby on 1 x ST30 and 3 x ST20, all first generation, and they are still on after a hour of inactivity.
To any one that wants that solution go to the previous page of this topic and read iamnotanexpert's solution. PuTTY is freely downloadable and easy to use. You do have to know the IP address of the unit to connect to it.
I don't know why the developers won't just add this in the app as an advanced user setting. They could even have a warning not recommending the setting change if there is a particular negative consequence associated. But it would be the user's choice.

Yes, for some reason you usually have to enter the command twice. After getting the message the first time enter it again and hit enter and see if it accepts it

OMG this worked! Why can’t they make this a setting in the app? I am in the tech business and people always ask me for recommendations. I had several people ask for a recommendation on which speaker to use with an echo dot. I told them don’t use the sound touch as it doesn’t stay on and it ruins the whole experience. I still can’t recommend it for the common user because telneting to a device is not a normal thing people do.
but to the original poster thank you. My useless sound touch is hooked back up!!
