    Question Screen Timeout...What do you set yours on? Please help?

    What do you guys set your screen timeout on? Mine is on 1 minute and it can be a bot of a pain but I don't want to drain my battery. Does this have a big effect on the battery? Thanks a bunch!

    I just installed screebl from marketplace and it seems to work well so far. It senses the angle of the droid. You can adjust the angle at which you want it to stay on and at which it times out after 15 seconds.

    Normally if you are on a long call the Droid will automatically turn off the screen to save battery life. Anyone try this with screebl installed? Will the screen stay on for the duration of the call? Is it an option to turn off the screen in that case? Thanks!

    Edit - looks like they will be handling this in an update.

    I went to 2 minutes, a lot less annoying, rarely times out before i want, I'm actually in a habit of timing it out myself. Battery made it all day with quite a bit of use - only had it 3 days so you can imagine I'm playing with all the bells and whistles.

    I have mine set to 15sec. and touch the screen often enough that (for the most part) it doesn't turn off. Sometimes if I'm fast enough after it goes black I can hit the power button and the screen will light up before the lock screen kicks in.

    You can enable the Auto Brightness function for the display. I found this to greatly help with the battery consumption of the display.

    You can go into Setting > About Phone > Battery Use to see just how much juice that big beautiful display uses in comparison to the rest of the phone.

    screebl is a pretty sweet app that essentially solved all my autolock/autosleep issues. All other apps I have tried did not do it as well. If your screen sleeping to soon, or autolock in the car or what ever. Try screebl and youre set

    I have mine set for 30 seconds, more then enough time to do what i need, and usually i touch the screen alot anyways.
    Resistance is futile.

    I want to add another vote for screebl...it's a great app and it will actually save battery life by shutting down phone in less than 15 seconds if you lay your device down and dont move it...

    That can save a lot of minutes throughout the day : )

    Screebl lite is a must have in my opinion.
