Can I disable auto screen locking?
I have a non-rooted HTC Desire HD with Android 2.3.5 and HTC 3.0 which I only use as an Internet Tablet, ebook reader, audiobook reader, music player, GPS, etc. but without any SIM card inside.
I am using the "no-lock" app to prevent the screen from locking, but as soon as the screen fully dims out I have to press the main on/off button at the top right to get the screen to respond to my touch.
Is there a way to configure the phone so that any touch on the screen immediately re-activates it, meaning that it un-dims itself and responds to touches again?
In my car I listen to music and audiobook and the best way to stop the music/book when needed is to pull out the headset cable (which goes to my car's stereo). But to resume listening, I have to press on the top button and then press "play" again. And since my DHD is in an OtterBox Defender its rather a pain. I wish I could just keep the screen awake all the time (at least to my touch, even while dimmed) and only have it really lock when I press the top button to deliberately lock it.
Is that possible?
Thanks in advance :-)
