    I'm surprised there aren't more threads about this. I've searched for an answer and can only find the three dash (-) trick, which is only a temporary solution.

    So here's the deal. I have NFLST and whenever I am watching the Game Mix channel and don't touch the remote for a few minutes, the screen dims and a message comes up saying, "Screen safe mode enabled, press dash (-) twice to disable" or something like that.


    I have a Sony, Samsung and Vizio. Each get the exact same message if on the Game Mix channel and left alone for more than 15 minutes.

    I understand why this function is there, but I don't think the 6 hours I watch ST each week are going to screw up my TVs. I'm just getting sick of taking them out of safe mode every few minutes, especially when I'm working on something else and glancing up to watch the games every few minutes.

    Is anyone aware of a way to PERMANENTLY disable this function? It's driving me nuts!

    There have been alot of us who want to be able to Disable that Function but it falls on Deaf Ears for some reason.
