Default Newbie wants to keep screen on while charging

Hi gang,

I'm new to the forum and new to Android as well. One of my previous gadgets always stayed on while charging (or even plugged into my computer), but the Infuse doesn't allow this. I use it more as a PDA than a phone and would love it if it stayed on while I worked.

Is this something that will be possible with the Gingerbread upgrade I've been reading about? Or does this require some rooting (which, as a newbie, strikes me as daunting)?

Any advice, ideas or suggestions would be welcome. Thanks in advance!

On stock android ticking Settings / Applications / Development / Stay Awake (screen will never sleep while charging) should do the trick.

Thanks, Snedd, but that's not an option under Development on the Infuse. The only options I see are USB debugging and Allow mock locations.

And the screen power off only goes up to 10 minutes.

Maybe its an android version thing. This looks like it should do what you want: Caffeine

"Caffeine is a tiny application which prevents your phone from going to sleep.
Caffeine is a tiny easy to use application which prevents your phone from going to sleep, lock or dim the screen.
You can toggle it manually or let it automatically activate only when the device is connected to AC Adapter and/or PC."

Yes, I'm tired of turning it on 50 times a day! I run a small business and I need a lot of the data I gather in the field throughout the day.

If Caffeine doesn't work out for you, Widgetsoid will do what you need (+ a whole lot more).

My mom has an HTC phone that the screen stays on while it charges. I always thought it was weird but it does run gingerbread.

The Caffeine seems to do the trick, but I'll check out Widgetsoid, too.

Thanks for all the help, gang!

PS Is there a simple way (or a helpful place) that one can use to find what apps are out there?
