In our tests with these settings applied the device, it stays connected for over 30 minutes with no drops. This means that when the user is actively scanning and working in the warehouse, the device will remain on, connected to mobility server and the screen will always stay on. If you intend to take an extended break it is recommended you return the device to the charging cradle, or press the power button and allow the device to move into SUSPEND mode. Hitting the power button again will re-enable the device. After a short delay (10-15 seconds) it will reconnect to the WiFi and you can continue your Mobility Scanning session.
