    I feel like continuum might be useful if it would keep my external monitor on all the time. Instead the phone keeps locking turning off my screen (external monitor). Maybe there's an easy solution for this but havent been able to find it.

    Yeah, it was actually mentioned when Continuum first came out that there's an app for just what you're asking for. Disable Screen by thXer. Look it up. :D

    So i have to run an app to make continuum work. Microsoft is so good sometimes and other times they are so completely stupid. I don't understand

    Yeah, disable screen app works to turn the screen off, but your phone will still time out because the screen isn't moving. So if you leave for a pee break, your phone will lock even with the disable screen app.

    A work around this is to get 2(minimum) black photos and put them in a slide show. That way, there are 'moving images' on your phone and it won't lock.

    You can simply change the settings on your phone so that your screen never locks automatically. Guess this would solve your problem

    This is the biggest drawback to using continuum, now that they have patched in Ethernet support.

    Missing some of the old emotes though. Yummy and angry, my two favourite ones (especially for talking to girls) are gone

    With the Lumia 950/950XL the maximum time it can stay on is 5 minutes because of the AMOLED screen.

    Found a solution anyway, use the app NoSleep by Humboldt Apps, it won't lock your phone even if you go past the timer as opposed to Disable screen'.

    Thanks for bringing this app to our attention! Keeping the screen from locking is absolutely priceless for music streaming and just generally stopping every app closing when you walk away for a moment.

    This is good stuff. The only downside to NoSleep (so far) is it doesn't show notifications, clock, etc.; just blanks the screen. But I can live with that. Two taps on the screen and everything is right there as I left it.

    You mean glance screen?
    Well, the app was designed to be just black screen anyway. But now that I'm thinking about it could be possible to add it as an option. Would be hard I imagine.

    Blackout looks good as an alternate too.
