    Navigation is a known power hog, and I actually like the screen dimming on this app. It does "wake up" on upcoming instructions and stays bright until after the maneuver is completed. As far as dimming in other apps, I cannot speak to this.

    chrisyouwanttknow, man, i guess im glad that im not just to dumb to get this to do what i want. however, im bummed that there is no fix to this. its so annoying. during the day time, on my car dock, it dim's so dark that it looks off. so the first thing i do is click the side button to turn it on. which of course turns it off. then begins my frustration. like you, i use it to play music through my bluetooth radio. its annoying that i have to wake it up just to change the song.

    I have figured out how to fix this problem!
    If you ever heard of a program called Tasker go get it from the Google Play Store. Tasker can be very intimidating but the different things that it can do are virtually endless. You basically just setup a profile that says to keep the screen on while charging. Doing it through this way prevents the screen from dimming. If you need help setting it up let me know. I can post screen shoots. I am so happy that I have fixed this! It was really bugging me.
    :)

    i have tasker, and have it setup this way.

    left side says power any.. right side says stay on with ac or usb power.

    Ok, so this is the setup I got going with Tasker. So basically the main thing that you need to set is the timeout setting, on the DROID RAZR MAXX, you can only set the screen to 10 minutes max on screen timeout. Here you can set it to basically 24 hours. So the dim feature happens a few seconds before the screen times out, so in theory the screen should stay fully lit for almost 24 hours(I have yet to test this since I do not leave my phone's screen on for more than 24 hours, lol) . Ignore the flash Happy Android That is just a message that flashes when I plug in to charge. This works for me. When I plug in my phone to charge, the screen never dims now. I guess it probably would if I left it on for a whole day. But that never happens. Let me know if you have any questions. I do have some other settings managed by smart actions. Like putting the screen to full brightness when I am in my car. Tasker is basically like smart actions, but Tasker can just be a little bit more confusing(it took me a while to figure it out). Now when I unplug my phone the screen turns off completely in 30 seconds and locks. It has worked perfectly so far.

    Happy Androiding!

    Oh yeah, I do not know if it matters but in display timeout on the bottom I set if Battery equals battery. I was changing stuff around and this might need to be set as well. Also remember to turn the profile on after setting it up.
