    Does anyone know of an app that allows you to set the droid so that by default the screen stays on when charging unless it's turned off?

    For me it would be nice when streaming music, especially in the car.

    There are apps that can do this for you. KeepScreen is what I recommend, and Screebl is another app that will do the same.

    edit: 2 posts down is a much better solution :)

    Well you can go to settings>applications>development and select "usb debugging"

    or you can download something called screen mode widget (i think) and it has an option to keep the screen on until you tell it to turn off.

    I did it by going to settings>applications>development>stay awake (screen will never sleep while charging)---copied straight from phone

    This is the best way... I completely over looked it :icon_eek:
    Native functions are always better than using a 3rd party app :)

    AmyK, you're my hero! That is the ticket I was looking for. I hadn't played around or looked thru the development area thinking it was dedicated to developers lol.

    Thanks for the other suggestions as well.

    P.S. all that droid knowledge and cute to boot!
