    Multimedia Station

    I got the multimedia station and when you plug in the DX it makes the screen look like a alarm clock which is OK. But what I don't like about it is that the display goes black just a little while after plugging it in. To me this defeats the one of the purposes of using it. Sure I guess I could go in there somewhere and change everything and then when I unplug it go back in a change everything back. Kind of doesn't make much sense. Should bring up an icon that lets you set it up for when you have it plugged into the station. I have a number of electronics that when it senses a power supply plugged in lets the display stay on as in most notebook computers. Anyone got any ideas?

    Mine does not do this or if it does, it is not a noticeable difference.

    Though I'd think that'd be a setting of the Dock. Especially since Android hides that setting under "Development". Bad Android. Is there no settings in the Dock? I don't have the dock and I'm not sure how to launch dock mode (well, I understand the magnet thing, of course) - I use the DockService app and a homemade bedside dock while I wait for a cheaper than $50 alternative. I only use it for an alarm clock. $50 seems like an expensive alarm clock to me.

    EDIT: is this the same as when in the Moto dock?
