Galaxy S8 Mobile Hotspot shuts off with screen off timeout

marketforces052017

    Good morning fellow community members,

     

    I needed to use my Mobile Hotspot on my new Galaxy S8 this morning, and ran into something super annoying: Every time the screen times out and shuts off, the Mobile Hotspot dies. So, I have to keep touching the screen every couple minutes (I have the timeout set to 2 minutes) to keep my hotspot going.

     

    I looked all through the settings and can't find what would fix this. I went through the power management stuff, specifically where it talks about which apps are power-optimized, and if I choose "unmonitored apps" I can't find the Hotspot (or T-Mobile Hotspot) in the list.

     

    Thoughts?

     

    Thanks.

    -R
