Any Sleep timer app for KFHD?

I searched here for sleep timer, found nothing. Searched at Amazon and the ones they show are for sleep machines App.

Does anyone know of a sleep timer that will put the KFHD to sleep listening to and reading a book?

Thanks.

You may not need a sleep timer, the machine has one built in. The limit is one hour and it will go to sleep if it has no input from the user.

Look in the settings menu on your KFHD under "Sounds & Display" then select "Screen Timeout".

But does that work when music or videos are playing?

Good question and the answer is No it does not work with audio, have not checked videos yet and probably not anytime soon.

But I did check with a audio book and the book had a built in sleep timer or it is using the kindle timer and when a book is playing the book sets the priority for time out, the max time is still 60 minuets or end of chapter.

Yeah I tested it last night it only works for shutting the screen off (sleep) the sleep timer is for audible books. When you listen to immersion reading the ebook and audio the audio keeps paying, there is no timer there.

Doesn't anyone need a sleep timer for immersion reading, or text-to-speech feature?

I can not find a sleep timer. I can't be the only one who needs one for audio and video. Rather surprised there are no apps that do this.
