Is there any way to lengthen the time the unlock screen stays open on my Droid? It seems to vary between 3-5secs and sometimes is just too short. I tried setting an unlock pattern but the screen timeout remains the same. It is also unaffected by changing the "screen timeout" setting.

While on that note, is there any other way to get the phone out of "sleep" mode (I don't know the technical name) other than hitting the power button? I am used to my old Samsung where hitting any hard button would "wake" the phone up.

No there is no way to lengthen the screen time-out period while on the lockscreen....

And instead of hitting the power button to unlock you could just slide the keyboard out a little ways and then close it back to wake the phone up....

mylock, currently under development, will skip the lock screen with power or keyboard slide. Here is the thread here:

I haven't followed it in a while though, I don't think it's on the market yet. You might be able to find a beta apk there somewhere.

Screebl. It will stop your screen from blanking out while you are using it (even on the lock screen).

I have a question regarding my Motorola Droid. It appears that this has just started happening. When I answer a call, the phone goes black when it goes up to my face. That part is fine, it is the process of having to unlock it again before I can terminate the call. Is this normal?

I swear that it never did that before, but maybe I am mistaken.
