ran the update yesterday and ever since, my stick goes to sleep every thirty minutes, even if I’m streaming a program. Any ideas on how to fix this?
Welcome to the digital and device forum!
I am sorry you are having Problems with your Fire TV Stick.
Just for clarification: Do you have your TV on sleep timer mode maybe?
Here's is a few steps that might help with the Fire TV Stick:
Restart your device. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the device or from the power outlet, and then plug it back in. You can also use your remote to restart your device. Press and hold the Select and Play/Pause buttons at the same time, for about five seconds. Or, select Settings > Device > Restart from the Fire TV menu.
Make sure that you are using the power supply provided with your Fire TV device. Connect the included power adapter into the power port on the back of your Fire TV device, then plug the other end into a power outlet.
For Amazon Fire TV (1st and 2nd Generation), make sure that you are using a High Speed HDMI cable, if needed. The cable should say "High Speed", "1.3", or "1.4" on it. Plug one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the back of your Amazon Fire TV, then plug the other end into an available HDMI port on your TV. For Fire TV Stick, make sure that you use the included HDMI extender.
If you are using an HDMI hub, disconnect your Fire TV device from the hub and try plugging it directly into the TV.
Try switching to a different HDMI port on your television. Remember which HDMI port you used to connect your Fire TV device and switch to the corresponding input channel on your TV.
If your Fire TV device remains on the logo screen during setup, wait at least 10 minutes for the device to finish loading. If your Amazon Fire TV (1st or 2nd Generation) is still slow to start after initial setup, make sure you are using a High Speed HDMI cable.
If your Fire TV device turned off while you were using it or after installing a software update, leave your Fire TV device unplugged until it has cooled down.
