That is what is so good about this pad. There is no 2 hour shut off, so you don't need a "stay on" setting. It is on until you turn it off. Seems the link I posted when to a group of heating pads, not the one that I was talking about. Try this link instead. Hopefully it posts right this time. In case you can't find the pad, the pad # 000771-810-000. I didn't double check it earlier before posting. I was in a hurry to leave. It's my daughter's birthday and we took her out to eat seafood for her birthday. I've had this pad on and running since Friday morning with no problems. It stays on, doesn't shut off. The only thing I've done is adjusted the temp.
