By default, Horizon Client enters the background when the interval set in the iOS Auto-Lock option expires. You can configure a Horizon Client setting to keep Horizon Client in the foreground, regardless of the Auto-Lock interval.

You do not need to enable this feature if you are using presentation mode. In presentation mode, the screen always stays alive.


  1. Connect to a remote desktop or published application.
  2. Tap the Settings (gear) icon in the Horizon Client Tools radial menu.
  3. Tap Keep Screen Alive.
  4. Tap to toggle the Keep Screen Alive option to on.
  5. Tap Done to close the Settings window.
