    I had to use locale to set my screen timeout to never when on my desk dock to keep my screen from turning off while playing pandora radio.

    Ranger. Is this on froyo or 2.1 Also is this plugged into ac power or on battery? Before I updated to froyo when in the dock and plugged into the car charger the screen would stay on.

    You guys should keep in mind that Froyo is experimental (for now) and shouldn't be expected to be flawless. I think this is just one of the bugs.

    I am thinking that it was changed in 2.2 due to everyone gripping about the screen staying on in earlier versions. Just a thought..

    There is a setting that has to be checked. Go to applications>development and then make sure that stay awake is checked.

    I love 2.2 so it isn't a complaint for me. I just installed a "screen on" widget for times I need it to stay on-works great. :)

    Asterisk, Thanks! I just got Froyo today through Verizon's OTA update and this was driving me crazy listening to music in my dock with the screen locking up.
    Thanks again!dancedroid

    Now we just need someone to come up with something to keep the dock desk clock mode to stay on like it use too. That screen saver mode with the clock moving around is a joke!

    You sir are my hero.

    This is exactly what I was looking for.

    I knew froyo wouldn't screw with me that much, there had to be a setting.

    You da man, Asterick - that's been bugging me for months. Thanks so much!! Too bad it doesn't prevent the bedside docker from doing that moving night clock, darn that thing is irritating to the degree that I no longer use the docker.
