    Hi Jenny,

    If you are referring to the swipe reader, the built-in timeout feature is something that is inherent with the product to save battery life. As far as the Chip and Tap reader, you may be able to avoid the auto shutoff by keeping it on the power dock. Hope that helps.

      Is the device able to be turned on and off? I don’t plan on using it with the charging stand. I’d like to be able to turn it on when I want to process a payment and turn it off when not in use. Thanks.

        Hi, Mel!

        Yes, you can turn the reader on and off by holding down the power key. I also found in some field testing that if you sign out of the app on your phone, after a while the reader shuts itself off. Of course, when you’re turning the reader on and off you’ll have to go in and reconnect the reader to the phone each time. It’s not difficult as long as your device can remember the pairing, but it does take a little bit longer.
