Well, since I just got my Galaxy Note 10.1 today. I have a question or two. I have been watching some videos on youtube and they were talking about Smart Stay. I have gone into settings and enabled Smart Stay and it doesn't work. Yes, my camera isn't cover or anything. The eye shows up on the bottom of the screen next to the clock. But I keep getting messages about Smart Stay can't see my eyes. I don't know what the trouble. I don't think that there is anything else that I have to enable. If anybody has any idea on how to solve this problem I would be greatly appreciate it.

Judging from the "Word on the Web" Smart Stay has not been that well received, particularly on larger Tabs..... It's also widely reported to be a known battery drainer, when left enabled..... prompting lots to switch it off.

It would seem that it does not operate that well in low light conditions and the angle, position, and distance of your Tab screen are all factors in it's correct operation...... so you may wish to experiment with these.....

I appreciate your reply. I was kind of afraid of that after some stuff that I read on the internet. It is really a shame that it doesn't work the way its supposed to as I think that its a really great idea. Again thanks for the help.
