    Standard Dock 'Bedside Mode' Screen Lighting Adjust

    When going into Bedside Mode, the screen lighting will dim a bit, and then when shutting off the light, the screen will go more dim.
    However, is there any possible way to get it to go dimmer? Or, adjust the dim setting for said mode? As, it's still too bright at it's dimmest.
    Anyone know if this possible?

    Have you gone into the Dock Settings? If you press on the Settings button while it's docked, the Dock Settings will come up. From there you can choose the Nighttime Dimmer level. I have mine set at the lowest and it gets really dim; almost too dark when the bedroom lights are on, but a nice dark but still seeable blue when they're off.

    Homer DOH! Thanks, will try that.

    Is there a setting to make sure while the phone is in the dock that it will go back to Bedtime Mode?

    What I mean is: When phone in the dock and in bedtime mode, if I log into the phone to check things out, when I'm done, the phone doesn't go back into the bedtime mode. I have to physically unplug the phone from the dock and plug it back in, in order for the bedtime mode to kick in.
    I've tried selecting (from the pull down notification area) the bedtime mode while the phone is in the dock, but nothing happens.

    Hmmm.. The pull down is supposed to work; at least, it does with mine. I just tried it again to confirm: In clock mode, I hit the home button, which brings me to the homescreen. When I'm done fiddling around with it, I use the pull down menu up top and press on the first option up top which is Connect to Standard Dock, Select to switch application. After hitting that, I hit the first option that comes up in the pop up menu, Bedside. And then I get the clock again. That's not working for you?? You know the first few times I had it docked and tried to switch back, it wasn't working for me either. It works without a hitch now, but now I have another problem with my dock, which I posted in this forum: Standard Dock No Longer Working Can't seem to get a resolution on that one, which is actually so much more irritating than not being able to switch into clock mode from desktop mode.

    Hmm.. That's weird.. Now it worked.... Umm
    Well, what I was doing last time was simply doing the BACK button, which brought me to put in my passcode, and then I fiddled around with the phone. Once done, I did the pull down and nothing happened(This was before).
    I'll have to take a closer look at the steps I did and try to recreate the situation consistently. If I can, I'll post back here what cases yields the issue I noticed.
    Perhaps you can then confirm.

    You know what?? The back button was probably what was tripping you up. I just tried a few things with mine... After docking and going into Bedtime mode, I hit the home key and started checking a few emails. After I was done, I started hitting the back button instead and it took me back to the homescreen and that was it. I had to go into the drop down menu and pick Bedtime to get back to it. I'm trying to remember, but I think when I first got my phone and got it out of bedtime mode, I kept hitting the back button and by the time I figured out I should've been using the drop down menu, nothing happened. I tried to recreate that just now, but it didn't work; I got back to Bedtime mode without a hitch again. But I'm thinking, though, if you had an issue with trying to go back to Bedtime mode after repeatedly hitting your back button, that may have been it. Let me know if you were able to recreate the issue.
