    We’ve made great progress with our PC app to manage competitions between up to 4 bots at once (being ‘remote controlled’ from PC game controllers).

    One issue which has cropped up is the bricks going to sleep. Do any of the commands sent via Bluetooth to EV3 bricks and/or NXT bricks reset the internal brick sleep timer?

    (If not, I guess we will have the kids increase the sleep timer values on their bricks to a large amount [or 'Never'])

    Thanks!

    Hi Mike

    Great news – I would be great to see a screenshot

    If I remember correctly the NXT does not allow you to set the timeout. There is a function to see what its value is. The function is called
    keep alive

    The EV3 works the same way – and I also think there is a function to see the value – but it has not been implemented.
