    Multimedia Dock + Froyo, screen won't stay lit like it did with 2.1

    ANyone know how to fix this? Updated to Froyo, multimedia dock times out as if it's not plugged in. In the past the screen would stay lit when on the dock. Thanks.

    Install Alarm Clock Plus V2 (FREE or Paid $1.79), then Go into the settings for Alarm Clock Plus V2 and set screentimeout to NEVER.

    Screen staying on while in dock

    I use a widget called :Screen Mode Widget.

    It has three modes
    1. AutoLock: Device will lock screen
    2. EaysUnlock Device will not screen lock but will dim
    3. ScreenStay: Screen will not lock and wnever dim.

    I use the 3rd option when in Car or Multimedia dock and the 2nd option so when the screen times out I do not have to unlock when pressing the power button.

    I can't get it to run at all. It force closes every time I try to run it since updating to 2.2. Now I can only find DockService and a few other pay apps in the marketplace and Dock Service says it is not for the MotoDroid. If I search for Dockrunner it tells me there are no matches. Any suggestions on how to get the app again? I have had the dock for a long time and can't remember how the app got on my phone to begin with...

    Go to the development settings and there should be a check box for "stay lit while connected to usb" or something that that effect. It keeps the screen on while plugged in.

    Development tab works!

    Brilliant answer to this problem.

    settings-->applications settings--> Development--> Stay awake option..


    Thanks!

    My Stay Awake option is checked, and the screen does not blank. Instead, the time jumps around as if it is a screensaver. This is since 2.2 and I don't want that at all -- I just want my dock screen. Also since 2.2, I must click through a USB Connected prompt, which is completely unasked for.

    This is not progress.

    I am having the same docking issues with the screen saver mode turning on. Loved when at my desk the clock and weather displayed prior to 2.2 - lots of comments above, but hesitant to download apps and comments are mixed. Any suggestion what to do? Have settings checked to always display when charging - still goes into sleep mode. I want my clock back!!!

    That worked on mine. When I take it out of the dock, I'll just change the screen timeout. I have a dock at work, and want the screen to stay on then; at home, I have a dock, and use the alarm, and I'll let set it to timeout then.

    The Stay Awake option under Settings/Applications/Development still let it go into sleep mode while on my dock.
