    Hey there, I'm wondering if there is a way that I can have the screen stay off while being plugged or unplugged to/from usb?

    I keep my screen on at all times I'm using it (screen timeout disabled)
    I don't see why my screen has to come on when I plug it in to use as a drive, or to charge it (I auto mount my usb)

    The only way to have your screen always on is to use an app like KeepScreen as most apps have/take control of the screen settings as needed when they are run

    Settings>applications>development>uncheck stay awake while charging should help while plugged into usb. Either that or after you plug it in just hit the top power button to shut it off manually
