Disabling screen timeout for plasma mobile

How to disable the very short screen timeout for plasma on the pinephone.

-This can be an incredibly distracting issue, -maybe it needs dealing with?

I happened to long-press the desktop, and "Add Widgets" appeared
I pressed this, and tried adding the "Display Configuration" widget.
It had something called "Enable Presentation Mode", which I tried.

This seemed to work, and the screen then stayed on indefinately -Yay!

Perhaps this is helpful to someone else?

Respects; I have not used my P64 for awhile and hit the fast time out first thing. Angry Thanks to your post, I rectified it. Of course, as I followed our instructions, it started to come back to me (DOH!) but you got me going. Thanks!
