    In 2.1, when charging in the car dock, the screen stayed bright. This is what I want.

    In 2.2, it goes to lowered brightness during the day, but not in the evening. I set the brightness to high and turned off auto bright, to no avail.

    Do i have to buy tasker to program this thing? (this Droid is great, but requires more maintenance than a woman. Updates, application updates, on and on. I don't have time for both, and I prefer to keep the woman!)

    Perhaps you should go both ways and score an iphone for a maintenance-free socialized experience..... <chuckle>

    Well, I'm sure that will brighten up all the female Droid owners who are probably thinking some choice words for you for the title of this thread.

    All you need to to is clear the cache out every once in a while and shut it off from time to time. I don't find I have to do a lot of maintenance, I am rooted so that makes it easier.

    You know peoples perceptions about the Droid are interesting. All I got to say is if you think this requires maintenance, try a Blackberry Storm. That's truly astounding.

    I don't use the car dock for anything so I don't have a firm answer for you. But I'd be willing to bet that there are settings in there somewhere that you are missing. Dig around and you'll find it/them.

    Also, I seem to recall that there were some alternate "Car Dock" apps in the market that were supposed to be an improvement over the native app.

    Good luck.

    It does it in the evening too. I'm rooted and currently running UD7 and it still does it to me too. I've yet to find a setting to turn it off.

    Oh Cmon, his woman just needs to be maintained at the proper pressure ...

    and a patch every now and then, just like SW !

    I agree. It doesn't take much maintenance, especially with the "update all" feature of Froyo.

    But I have to say that there is virtually no documentation that provides the (good) advice you note above. Rebooting one's phone, much less "clearing cache," is hardly a task many users would think to undertake. Yet I see post after post here that suggest those actions would resolve users' problems.
