    I just got a Prius Prime Advanced, and I'm trying to learn all the features of the nav/infotainment system and multifunction displays. When I turn on the power and leave the car in Park (with the car plugged in to charge) and sit in the car playing with the screens, the power shuts off after about 60 seconds and I have to restart the car to continue. It even kept shutting off while I was trying to download an update of the Entune software. I searched the manual but could not find any information on how to keep the power from shutting off so quickly. Can anyone help with this?

    Anyway to override this? To spend more “quality” time in the car and “on the grid?”

    No, just finish charging when you're done.

    Same here. Annoying and with no other fix.
