    Yes,

    Best Option:

    Settings>Deveopment>Stay Awake> Check this and it will stay on as long as the power cord is connected.

    This will also allow the phone to sleep when the poser cord is not connected.

    Second Best Option

    Settings>Screen Timeout>Never This will keep the screen on at all times but will not allow the screen to sleep and thus us up a lot more battery power while not connected to power cord.

    I have the car dock also but the only time the screen doesn't stay on is when it's docked but not plugged into power. If you don't mind buying a $5 app you can get better use of the dock. The program is called Tasker. When I dock mine it turns up the brightness, turns on bluetooth and GPS, turns off wifi, and launches Pandora. You can also add the above setting if you wanted to use it without being plugged in. All the settings go back to normal when you when you remove from the dock.

    Download the app Screebl Lite. It will keep your device's backlight on while docked and you can turn your timeout settings to a short 15 seconds. It uses the accelerometer to sense the device's orientation to keep the screen on.
    a little obsessive...
