I'm getting some new amiibo's for Christmas, and I want to train them while I'm AFK, but the problem is I don't know if the gamepad can stay on for more than an hour some how.

  • I am not a Wii-U user, but try looking for some sort of Power Saving category in the settings, as most of the Sleep after time setttings are usually there

In my experience, the gamepad never turned off while charging. In other words: Keeping the power cord plugged in should ensure that your gamepad will never turn off as long as the Wii U doesn't turn off by itself. At the very least, I've been able to leave my Amiibos fighting each other for over 1 hour and a half while playing on my other consoles or PC in the meantime. I never encountered any problems then.

The Wii U itself can be set to never automatically shut down. This is done under: Settings > Power Settings > Auto Power-Down where you can either enable or disable it. When you enable it, you will be asked to choose how many hours (from 1 to 12) the Wii U can remain idle before turning off. Simply disable the feature to get rid of it.
