Welcome to the Forum.

I don't have a DM but most phones have a screen timeout setting. It should be located in the setting menus.
 
I use am app sometimes called wake lock to keep my screen on.

If you go to Settings > Developer Options > There is an option for Stay Awake (screen stays on while charging). That should do it.

To enable these, go to Settings - About Phone. Then go to the bottom and you should see Build Number. This needs to be pressed a total of seven times. You should get a message at the fourth press. On the seventh, you'll get another message saying that Developer Options are unlocked.

OP states that when the phone is plugged in, the screen stays on. Not sure the answers so far are what he/she's looking for.

Try going into your settings and finding your display settings. I don't have a moto device either, but on my Samsung Galaxy s4, the Display options menu has an option for "Screen timeout." Options range from 15 seconds to 10 minutes on my phone.

I don't remember what it was defaulted to, but I always set it to Never if available, or the highest I can, because I'm religious about turning the screen off when I'm done doing what I want to do. (I also have a habit of turning off other people's screens when they leave them sitting around and on.)
 
Well, if you ignore op grammar then they are asking a question how to make screen stay on. This is why grammar is important.
 
I thought the OP said "if phone is plugged in can I make screen stay on".

Now that I read it again for the fourth time, I think maybe you guys are right...

wow I did the developer option thing it works great thanks for your help, its nice to have screen stay on all the time while charging, I understand screen to shutoff to conserve power but while plugged in power is endless

the phone probably does way more than I need but what are all the developer options for who, or why would someone use them

My belief is this: I don't know what most of those settings do (I am not an app developer) so I leave them alone...unless I want my screen to stay on during charging.
