    Is there a way to permanently set the screen timeout to maximum?

    Everytime I plug my Droid into a wall outlet and then disconnect and go back to battery power, screen timeout reverts back to 1 minute and I have to continually reset it bck to max.

    Haven't figured out how to keep it permanently set to max.

    Thanks for any help with this.

    I've never tried to permanently set to Max, but I know there is an app in the market called keepscreen that will keep the screen on for any apps that you set it to. I keep screen timeoit set to the minimum in settings, but use keepscreen so that the browser and other apps never let the screen turn off until I exit out of them. Hope that helps.

    Phunkyjoey,

    Thanks for your reply. Actually, I already had the KeepScreen app downloaded but I never activated it. Did so after I read your reply.

    Also noticed that I had the 'Screen On' App downloaded. Are you familiar with Screen On?

    Any recommendation re KeepScreen versus Screen On?

    Thanks

    Richard

    Screebl lite will also keep your screen backlight on so you can keep your timeout setting at minimum. Screebl uses the accelerometer to sense the angle oyour device so it knows when you are holding it.

    I've never actually tried any other apps that work to keep the screen on (other than KeepScreen), so i have no real basis of comparison. I may have to give the 2 listed in this thread a try though and see how well they work.
