    I use the Motorola charging dock at night time, so the display is dimly lit all night long. Should I be concerned about the image being permanently burned into my screen, or is this a non-issue?

    I could be wrong on this, but I don't believe this is an issue with the type of screen used on the Droid.

    I have the hard leather case on my Droid, do you know if this would this fit into the dock with the case on it?

    Nope. I made that mistake and bought the case....only a naked droid will fit in the multimedia dock.

    I'll agree, LCDs dont succumb to burn-in like CRTs and plasmas.

    But when my phone is in the charging dock for 10 minutes, it switches to a screensaver sort of thing. The screen goes black, and just the time and date are displayed in green. The time and date move around the screen, switching positions every couple of seconds. It's significantly dimmer, so I'm not sleeping next to a flashlight. OP, yours doesnt do this?

    You must have a screensaver app, what you are describing is not a standard feature on droids.

    No screensaver app that I'm aware of. It did it on my stock phone, DroidMod, Cyanogen, and now BB1.0.... I stick it on the cradle, and about 5-10 minutes after the screen shuts off and I get a pretty green clock.

    Mine has never done that - wish it would so I could see it, but if I didn't like it, I'd want to get rid of it.
