How do I turn off sleep mode on Do Not Disturb?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

To turn off sleep mode on Do Not Disturb, you can customize your interruption settings on your phone. Here are the steps to do so:

1. Open your phone’s Settings app. Look for the app with a gear or cog icon, usually found on your home screen or in the app drawer.

2. In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Sound & vibration.” This option is usually located under the “Device” or “Sound” category.

3. In the Sound & vibration settings, you should see an option called “Do Not Disturb.” Tap on it to access the Do Not Disturb settings.

4. Within the Do Not Disturb settings, you will find various options to customize how it works. Look for the section labeled “What can interrupt Do Not Disturb” or something similar. Tap on it to proceed.

5. Under this section, you will see different categories that you can choose to block or allow during Do Not Disturb mode. In this case, you want to focus on the “People” category, which includes calls, messages, or conversations.

6. Tap on the “People” category to expand it. Here, you have the option to block or allow certain contacts or groups to interrupt your Do Not Disturb mode. You can customize it according to your preferences.

7. If you want to completely turn off sleep mode on Do Not Disturb, you can choose to block all calls, messages, or conversations by toggling the respective options off. This way, no one will be able to interrupt your Do Not Disturb mode.

Remember, these steps may vary slightly depending on your phone’s make and model or the version of the operating system you are using. However, the general idea remains the same – navigate to the Do Not Disturb settings and customize the interruption settings to block or allow specific contacts or groups.

By personalizing these settings, you can have better control over how your phone behaves during Do Not Disturb mode and ensure uninterrupted periods of focus or rest.
