    For my HTC Incredible, I could set the Developement seeting to have the screen on all the time while it is plugged into a charger. I like to use it as a clock at night. I don't see that setting in the Development setting on the S3. Anyone know if this can be configured on the S3?

    Go to the market and get this Alarm app, been using it for the longest, it is fantastic, once loaded, set it up and then click on icon once you are ready to go to bed, you can view the phone in horizontal and landscape mode, it shows you the current time, alarm time and battery charge indicator, after a few minutes the screen goes black and only the time shows as to not light up the room. It works the same on any Android phone.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The stock alarm seems have all the different options I need but I'll give it a try. I'm still curious if there is an option like the HTC developer setting ( a way to leave the screen on without any time out if it is plugged in).

    You can also use an app called screebl lite. It will keep your screen on based on orientation of the phone.

    I would worry about screen burn-in though.
