If you’re having trouble with your headset (HMD) going to sleep while using Bigscreen to watch a movie, TV show or other content, it’s possible Steam is trying to reduce its power usage automatically and turning off your headset.
Here’s how to disable this so you’re able to enjoy movies without your VR headset going black:
Turn off displaysto
Turn off controllersto
This method means Steam will no longer have control over your headset’s ability to sleep at all – use with caution!
Disable Power Management
