PLEASE bring back the “NEVER” option in the Auto-Sleep settings.
One of my most common uses of the Go is as a video streamer. Apps like Netflix, Hulu and YouTube all feature content that run well past the 15 minute mark. Most of the time I watch these type streams, I’m reclined and typically still. It is EXTREMELY annoying when the auto-sleep feature kicks in and powers down the device. The NEVER option worked beautifully in preventing this issue but, for some unknown reason it has been rolled back. Please re-enable this feature...it was super useful!

I can't fathom why the Never option was removed. For a decide designed primarily to consume media, having the thing sleep every few minutes that a user isn't moving is absurd. WTAF!
Yes! We bought our Oculus for use at events and don't want to give customers the controller (as we don't want this to get lost). Because of the sleep mode, we used to be able to leave the content running and they could simply pick up the Oculus and watch the video. Now we have to have someone on hand to start the content again every time someone picks it up which just isn't feasible! The Oculus totally isn't fit for our use any more and we will be considering alternatives.
I agree this is totally ******** bring back the feature
I'm thinking about returning mine over this. I got the thing to watch movies and TV on. That is just not possible on this without the option to turn off auto sleep.
