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!!
