Welcome to the MHP thread! I looked that up, it HAS a 2 hour auto off and NO way to override it. Plan to be up every 2 hours for 3-4 weeks or get one that has the "stay on" feature like the Xpressheat: http://www.sunbeam.com/sunbeam-site...wvar_002013-511-MASTER_color=burgundy#start=1 This is one of the reviews: "2 hour auto off is a must My active kid's many sports activity leaves him with sore muscles quite often. This heating pad helps with that and it's so relaxing that he likes to fall asleep to it. Thank goodness for the auto off feature so that I'm not worried about it."
