Default Screen Always Awake (Is there no perm method other than an app?) :( for nexus 7

Like the title... Is there absolutely no way via a edit of some kind other than an app to keep the screen on or disable sleep untill you press the power button? :/

Is there a legitimate reason why they only gave 30min max and just did not put a disable option? super curious

At least there is one such option in developer menu, but you need to be connected with cable (charging).

I think the only reason is battery drain. On some devices, like my galaxy s4, the available options are even more limited - I have 10 minutes maximum instead of plain android's 30 minutes.
