Last page read instead of screensaver?

Just bought the Boox Max 2 for reading technical PDFs, and I'm finding that the reader times out too quickly and changes the screen image. Is there a way, even if the device powers off, to keep the display on the last page read, so I can keep reviewing a page of data without having to press the power button every few minutes? Thanks!

Can’t you just change the timeout setting so it stays on longer or never turns off? Just checking settings. I have a note pro and have it set to not sleep until 30 minutes have passed.

Although a little bit laborious, one could take a screenshot of a page that one was reading then long press on the resulting image to select it as the image for the lock screen or sleep screen.

Of course, one would have to pre-plan that. It wouldn't help much when the device unexpectedly shuts off or goes to sleep.

I once made an app to do that automatically so I always had the last page on the screensaver. But that was for a different device that had an ancient android version (2.1 I think).

That would be such a great feature, particularly for music scores which I tend to leave on for weeks whilst I try and learn them. A simple watermark or indicator to show that it's sleeping would be all that was needed.
