    query
    when i copy a large amount of files, say a few gb of photoes from system to usb or memory card the process pauses when the tablet screen switches off (sleep)

    i've looked in the power settings and there does not seem to be an option to let screen switch off and tablet not sleep

    does anyone know how to go about getting the tablet to finish background tasks before sleeping (while having the screen off to save power?)

    thanks

    Oh geez I saw an app for that... a few weeks ago... can't remember where at the moment... perhaps later during my meditation session. :)
