How can I stop by Samsung tablet from going to sleep longer than 10 mi

I have a Samsung Galaxy tablet model S5e that keeps going to sleep when I try to listen to an audio book. I have gone to settings/display/screen timeout, and you are only given the option to check up to 10 minutes, nothing longer than that, nor can you just turn the timeout  off completely.  I have to stop and enter my 4 digit pin every 10 minutes, and it is super annoying. My old Samsung tablet did not do that.

Is there a way around this? Can you reset a this tablet without having to enter a pin or face recognition every time you turn it on? I do not need this extra protection. I just want a tablet to stay on until I turn it off like my old one did.
