‘Lights Out’ 3DoF Mode for Rift S

Dear community,

as I didn't find according info via Google nor with the search function here, I wanted to ask:
Is there a 3DOF-Mode for the Rift S? 
I experienced that the Rift S often loses the "game area" which then has to be setup again. To show simple 3DOF experiences such as 360°-Videos, it would be great if the Rift S can be used without this play area or guardian. Is there a possibility to use the ‘Lights Out’ 3DoF Mode as on the Oculus Quest also with the Rift S?

    What might also work is to deny the Rift S to go to sleep mode, such keeping the tracking on.

    Is there any way to prevent the Rift S to go into sleep mode? I know that in the debug tool, the proximity sensor can be overruled, but as I read, the Rift S still goes into sleep mode after around 10 minutes.

    Thank you in advance!

    Has this just begun happening with the recent update?

    Many are dealing with it but look around, there's a thread on this with a workaround so the guardian doesn't reset.

    There is a setup panel in the software on the left side....your settings for allowing content (needed for d/l'ing) and others are there. I'm not sure about sleep mode but is your DT setup to sleep? 

    If you are taking about the unit shutting off, that's a function of the contact switch in the presspad in the face mask .
