    Just curious, has anyone actually timed it to see how much quicker it is to charge the Droid with the screen off as opposed to screen on? I was plugging in for a quick charge last night, and started wondering what kind of time factor advantage I was getting myself (1.5x? Better?) by turning off the screen.

    Just an idle curiosity query from a semi-bored engineer...

    I can't give you a figure but it is noticeable.

    Woah woah woah... you can charge the Droid when its off? Whenever I plug mine in to charge it and it's off, it just turns back on.

    With the screen off, yes. When you plug it in to charge it, the screen will come on; just hit the sleep button on the top of the Droid and it will put it to sleep and continue to charge it.

    I like turning the screen off during charging via USB, since USB charging is so slow already. It makes a difference =P
