I like to keep my screen timeout set at 2 minutes, because if I leave it set to "Never Timeout" I'll just plain forget to turn the screen off. With battery life a precious commodity, I can't afford to forget.
When I dock it in the Multimedia Station, however, I want the Droid to stay on at all times (for the clock, weather, etc). It's why I bought the dock. With it set to 2 minute timeout, the dock closes the screen after 2 minutes. Not nice!
That said, I can't find any way to 'have it both ways'. I either keep it set to a 2 minute timeout and the dock will turn off, or set it to never timeout and fear battery drain.
Any suggestions? I don't see any separate dock or charging settings, which stinks. How are you configuring this?
