    The pop up window that comes up when the phone is fully charged is driving me nuts! I always charge my phone at night and use a night clock application. However when the phone finishes charging it makes a loud noise and pops up a bright window. Even if the volume is all the way down, it vibrates when the window pops up. Just let me sleep already!
    Why this isn't just a normal notification instead of a pop up window is beyond me. pop up windows are never good. The notifications system of android is it's biggest advantage over other phone os's. pretty disapointed in samsung for this one.

    At any rate, anyone know of a way to stop this?

    Rant/
    i should say everything else about this phone has been a very positive experience for me.

    Wow, must be a bunch of light sleepers. I use Kaloer clock with the vibrant plugged into 2.1 speakers and I only ever hear the playlist start when the alarm goes off.

    Glad I sleep deeper than you guys. No offense.

    I put mine facedown on top of a t-shirt on my nightstand. Since I started doing that it doesn't wake me up anymore. I think it may not even be going off for some reason b/c it is facedown. Try it. I am a very light sleeper and it was waking me every night, too.

    (I put the tshirt under it to protect the face of the phone and also to keep it from vibrating or buzzing)

    ^^ But, the speaker is on the rear. Why would you place it face down??

    I am amazed so many actually use their phone as an alarm clock. I have an actual alarm clock and turn my phone off when it is charging during the night so it doesn't bother me.

    Well i'm on the road a lot and bringing an alarm clock everywhere is a pita, my g1 served that function well. The night clock silenced notifications and lets the alarm through, no annoying brite screen, no vibrate, no sound telling me it was charged, and guess what, i was never once confused as to whether it was charged or not. a:D

    I've said in other posts that the biggest weakness of the iphone is that every notification is a popup window, the biggest strength of android is the notification drawer, putting pop up windows in is to me, totally backward thinking.

    here's hoping for a fix.

    I use it as an alarm clock and put my phone to all silent from the drop down box. I don't think i makes a noise in the middle of the night. Atleast it doesn't wake me up at all and the alarm clock still comes on in the morning. You guys should give it a try

    I haven't owned an alarm clock for 3 and a half years (since I got my Sidekick 3). As a college student, I like to get up at different times each day depending on my work/school schedule and spending extra money on an alarm clock that has the ability to do seven (or more) different alarms seems pointless when my phone does it already.

    That being said, I was under the impression leaving your phone plugged in after it is fully charged was bad for the health of the battery. I have a heard a lot of debates about when to start charging it (50% or 1%) or how you shouldn't let it completely run out, or even how none of it matters with the type of batteries that are in cell phones, but few people seem to debate that leaving it charged after it is full is a good idea.

    Alarm clocks are cheap. Mine was $15 and it is 11 years old. Im getting my moneys worth and it still works perfectly.

    Battery chargers turn off when the phone is fully charged.

    My iPhone is a 2G and i plugged it in everynight for over two years whether it was down to 10%, or 70% and it still works the same as it did before. Well, it lasted longer till i upgraded to the 3.0 and above firmwares(had 1.1 when it was new). Then it didnt last as long but that isnt the battery. It is the firmware requiring more power.

    Treating my Vibrant the same way.

    Your $15, 11 year old alarm clock has unlimited alarms? That is impressive.

    Maybe I am doing things wrong. I just upgraded from my iPhone 2G which at this point was 2.5 years old and it had pretty terrible battery life to the point where if I accidentally left WiFi on at night it would be dead in the morning. But I mostly blame the age for that.

    I think the lights were the primary thing waking me up.

    Unlimited alarms? What exactly is that? I set it, it goes off at that time, it wakes me up.....after about 4 slaps of the snooze button later :D.

    Ha I know that feeling. I mean, I need at least one alarm per day for school/work/social events. In my experience, multiple alarm alarm clocks are pricey.

    PROBLEM SOLVED !
    I saw this suggestion in another forum and it WORKS, so I'm passing it on !
    Set the global notifications to SILENT.
    Set the notification on Gmail to any ringtone, NOT DEFAULT.
    Set the notification on messaging to any ringtone, NOT DEFAULT.

    You'll still have a tone when you 1st plug the phone in to the charger, but NO tone when it's fully charged.

    This hasnt been a problem since the gps updste came out for the Vibrant. The update also fixed that pop up and notification tone.

    For you guys with sensitivity to the ridiculously bright light. Check out: "Screen Filter" in the market place. It reduces the minimum brightness to whatever you want. QR code below

    Not correct. My Vibrant has the GPS update and STILL has the popup and notification tone. Hence the fix.

    That's great! I was just wondering why the screen doesn't dim enough, esp. for late-night low-light reading. With white text on a completely black background at the lowest stock dimness, I can still use it as a flashlight to find my way around in the dark :( Installed Screen Filter, dimmed to 17%, looks great. I'll try it out tonight.

    I wonder if this will help with battery at all. LCD's have separate backlights that must be dimmed, so black or white pixels take the same power. But I'm guessing that with AMOLED, the individual diodes (ie. pixels) produce their own light, so a dimmed display will consume less power. We'll see.

    And to the OP - yes, a "Your battery is fully charged" notification is completely ridiculous. I wish they'd add a "You've got no phone calls!" and "Your phone is off!" notifications too ;)

    Are you guys running stock firmware by chance?

    My wife used to complain that her Vibrant would display a popup and keep the screen lit all night when the battery was fully charged. (its now running 2.2 so this behavior has stopped)

    I recently picked up a Vibrant via Craigslist and immediately rooted and installed 2.2 on it. All I get is an icon in the notification bar when the battery is completely charged...I sleep like the dead though so I cant tell you if it lights up, vibrates, or sets off an air raid siren when it actually reaches 100%.

    Maybe something to consider though.

    This fixed it for me! I was on 2.1, but recently upgraded to Team Whiskey Nero v3, and it works like you describe. Beyond that, battery life is *drastically* better, and everything is better. It's just better.
