    Screen timeout is 1 minute.

    So based on theory in this thread a minute into the call my screen should have been in this "coma" state that is being discussed, correct?

    That would be correct, very odd. I tested mine a few more times tonight and it does the exact same thing. :confused:

    Here is my test that shows my phone appears to be working correctly.

    Anyhow, if I call myself (so as not to bother anyone else) or call voice mail and hold the phone flat in your palm it should stay lit. When you lightly pass your other hand over the screen it should go dark. When you remove your hand it will re-light again. I don't think there is any time out or anything else. It is just a proximity sensor that can tell if the phone is close to an object that could interfere with operation. Test it this way and see if it stays dark. Are your fingers or any other object close to the screen keeping it from re-lighting?

    Mine does that too but it blanked once on a very long call. Put your hand over it for 20 minutes or so and see what happens. That's if you can stand to do it that long.

    I am having problem with screen timeout, it turns off and only comes back on when I press the power button on the top of the set. Only way to keep it from doing this is to keep the timeout to "never off"

    Don't know if the flaws are infinite and I believe that VerGooMot are "on-it" with fixes coming soon.

    I did what a previous poster recommended, just set the screen to always on, which I prefer and was not an option on other smart phones I had. When you are finished just remember to to a short tap on the "on-off" button which will shut the screen off and save battery. Another short tap will wake the droid.

    thanks for the suggestion. I did change it to "always on" but it is still not very convenient to press the small button on top every time to turn the screen back on.

    Just had this for the first time today, after a 20 minute conversation with my father while I was in the supermarket.

    Second call to him was under 5 minutes, no problem with the screen coming back.

    Screen blanks when dialing - Here's why

    Same thing. While dialing the screen blanks. I hear is this more of a problem for right handed people than left handed.

    Look at the upper right hand corner of the Droid any you will see a small sensor window. Mine has a slight reddish tint. I understand that when this is placed against your ear the display will blank to conserve power. During normal use if you place your thumb over this sensor the screen will dim.

    Problem is, for some of us right-handers, the is where we place our thumb right after dialing, or right after pulling the phone away from our ear. Try keeping your thumb away from the sensor.
