    Just came, very cool, but while in "dock" mode, phone goes to sleep as set by screen time out. How in a perfect world can I keep my screen time out setting where it is (30 minutes) but have it shut to "never" when in docking station. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Try making sure it's plugged in right. I've had times where it's done that with mine, but then when I see the battery level, it's less than when I plugged it in. Removing and re-inserting it works like it should.

    Thx

    Aff: you know me well, this is something I'd normally do, but I checked and it's connected full enough to have fully charged.

    TehPriest - very cool idea- yeap, it's plugged into PC via usb, so I'll plug it into AC outlet and see how it goes and advise for the next person.

    Thanks to all.

    Puzzled, 2nd day, yesterday while on the docking station the screen never slept. Today I've not changed the setting and the :motdroidvert: continually goes out at 1 min setting.

    Point well taken. I always use AC to charge it. I tend to lose power when connected to the (powered) USB. That's because my signal at home is so low.
