Question: Guided Access - Sleep mode

is there a way to enable sleep mode during Guided Access?

Using an iPad as a Kiosk, and the display just stays on all day (and night, if no one presses the sleep button). Would like the normal 15 minute sleep timer to "kick-in" during guided access use.

Good afternoon TPABOLTSFAN,

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
I understand you would like some information about enabling sleep mode when using Guided Access. The resource below explains how to adjust the settings for Guided Access. I've highlighted some key information here for you. Click on the link for complete details.
Use Guided Access with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Set up Guided Access

Tap Settings > General > Accessibility > Guided Access to set up Guided Access. From there, here's what you can do:

  • Turn Guided Access on or off
  • Set a passcode that controls the use of Guided Access and prevents someone from leaving an active session
  • Set whether the device can go to sleep during a session
Take care.
