    I am trying to find out if there is a setting that will allow me to keep the phone screen on when I have my phone plugged into power. I'm thinking not because I've checked everywhere I can think in the settings. Was curious to see if anyone else might know.

    Unfortunately you'll have to manually set the timeout to Never if you want that. (not all phones have that setting too)

    Also, an idea is setting Glance to always on when plugged in (if you have that) but its probably not what youre looking for.

    I never thought to say what device I was using. Im on a Lumia 950.

    I figured this wasn't an option. I'm just wanting to leave my screen on while I'm listening to Spotify at my desk.Id even settle for some double tap action.

    Yea, on the 950 XL there's no option to "Never" turn off the display. I submitted this to the feedback app: Windows-Feedback:?contextid=279&feedbackid=9eecabd7-b74d-4abc-b172-f4796c4b35b4&form=2&src=2

    Open that link on your phone and add your vote :)

    question about the 950xl since you cannot set screen timeout to never, does the hotspot work when the screen shuts off?

    Yes, I'm pretty sure thats the same for any modern phone.
