Are you powering them with a USB port on the TV? Try a separate power supply. Or it could be the router dropping the connection.

WiFi is radio frequency. I think it was ultrasonics, maybe. I'm sure the device could be used ad hoc with a firmware upgrade. I doubt Google wants to lose control. It probably checks that the app you use is whitelisted , maybe for DRM too. You could maybe use your phone as a WiFi access point to run it, don't know how much data it would burn through.

You changed your question, yes, for now you need a WiFi network. But internet access from that network is not required to stream local videos. It is needed for the setup to work tho.

There are quite a few android apps that cast local files.

I guess if you change the lid closure to go to sleep,   it should override the power plan settings. Just don't fall asleep yourself on battery.

Or you could get a wireless mouse and attach it to a cat or gerbil or something.

In power options/edit plan settings click the enhanced power settings. Under sleep allow wake timers. Under hard disk change where it turns off. Under multimedia settings, when sharing media. Under wireless adapter settings, max performance. I haven't found a wake timer for hard drive activity. Or lan.

Cool, I tried to find a wake on lan for my laptop, but it seems to only exist on tower PCs. Suggest changing the power plan when charging to movie maximum, 3 hours? Sleep mode. Screen off shouldn't affect the cast.

Internet speed is irrelevant for local files. In power savings, is their a keep awake option? Can you time the occurrences to see if they happen every 30 minutes on the dot?
