I've recently run into an annoying occurrence with my multimedia dock for the droid. Originally when I purchased the dock, and placed the phone in, it would switch to landscape mode and run the media dock screen. This screen would stay up and always show the time and weather. Since I am using this at work (ie: its not too bright for sleeping) this is my ideal behavior.
However, last week the screen began timing out according to the screen timeout option set for the phone. The phone does show that I am docked to my computer, it also charges while in the dock. I cannot however figure out when the screen times out now.
I've tried a battery pull, safe mode startup (though the docking application won't run in safe mode), uninstalling Handcent SMS which I installed last week, simply taping the power button to turn on the display but it continues to time out after that.
Are there any suggestions?
PS I love the community you've built here. I've read a lot of very useful information in my short time as a member.
EDIT: I should add that I also have the car dock and I do not see this timeout issue with it when I have it plugged into the vehicle power adapter. I also do not see this issue when the phone is plugged into the wall outlet. When connected directly to the computer via the micro USB cable, the screen does timeout.
