Disable auto-dim, and other Chumby issues
After a somewhat painful setup process, I was able to setup my new Tablet S for Chumby , and then set it up so that Chumby fires up when I place it in the stand.
I only have (and want) one app in my Chumby app, and that is Facebook photo gallery. It is nice because it automatically pushes new pictures to my frame when I add pictures to Facebook. I previously had a sony dash, and before that a Framechannel Frame that did similar things.
However one very annoying thing is that even though I have auto-brightness turned off, and even though it is on power when in the cradle, the screen automatically dims after a short time. This makes the tablet a less than ideal picture frame even at maximum brightness because of the dimming.
Is there a way to keep it from dimming? Alternately, is there another app that displays full size photos on the tablet S that doesn't dim (also hopefully can get it to start automatically when docked, but that is not a must-have as much as I would like it)
