Managing Pico Sleep Settings

Device sleep settings have two components: Screen Off Delay and Sleep Delay.

Screen Off Delay

Sleep Delay

The time after a headset is taken off before the screen goes black / the display turns off.

Time after a headset is taken off before it goes to sleep. A device that is asleep will take longer to start back up than a device that only has its screen off.

Options: Unmanaged, 3s*, 10s*, 30s, 1min, 5min, 10min, Never

*Screen off delay for Pico Neo 3 cannot be set to less than 30 seconds.

Options: Unmanaged, 15s*, 30s , 1min, 5min , 10min , 30min , Never
​*Sleep delay for Pico Neo 3 cannot be set to less than 30 seconds.

πŸ›‘ If you wish to manage your fleet's sleep settings, you must specify both the Screen Off Delay and the Sleep Delay. A device turns off its display before it goes to sleep. So, the Screen Off Delay must be less than or equal to the Sleep Delay.

Managing Meta/Oculus sleep settings

By default, users can control a sleep timer from within the headset if not in ManageXR Kiosk Mode or Home Screen. These native in-headset options are:

  • 15 seconds (default)

  • 1 minute

  • 2 minute

  • 3 minute

  • 5 minute

  • 15 minute

  • 4 hours

With ManageXR, you can control whether your Meta devices sleep. Typically, a Quest device will go to sleep if the user is not wearing the headset. You can override the device sleep timer and prevent your devices from going to sleep by Disabling device sleep in your configuration settings.

Setting Button



A device's sleep setting will remain as the default or the last sleep setting that was applied to it.
*If the last sleep setting applied to your configuration was Disabled, and you then revert it back to Unmanaged, the sleep settings for devices that have synced with the configuration will remain Disabled. Meaning the devices will never go to sleep even if you have a sleep timer set from within the headset. If you Enable Device Sleep in ManageXR, the devices will then default to the last sleep timer applied to them from within the headset


Devices will never go to sleep, even if a sleep timer was selected within the headset. Once you do this, the only way to make the device sleep is if the user quickly taps the power button.


Devices will default to the last sleep setting applied to them from within the headset.
