    Hey Guys ... i was reading in another forum about a program found in the market called DockRunner... (free) and it simulates the droid as if it was on the actual docking station ($30) all u need is that program and a nice stand for ur droid ... Tada :D!! spend those $30 bucks on somthing else;)

    Alternative: Take the magnet (flat, circular one) off the back of a refrigerator decoration, then take a cotton handkerchief and fold it over a few times as a nice soft bed for your droid. Slide the magnet inside one of the folds, and if it faces the right way (polarity determines car/multimedia dock) whenever you place your phone down on its bed, it will switch to the dock.

    I did it by slipping a flat round magnet inside an old HTC sleeve, and lay the droid on top.

    Just an idea.

    I just downloaded it. It's a great app!

    I have the body glove case. If you leave the belt clip on, it actually makes a great stand for the Droid.

    I just ran across this app in the market too. It's nice!

    Is there a simple way to keep my droid from going to sleep after 30 seconds though?

    Also, I agree about the Body Glove case. It makes a perfect stand with the belt clip attached.

    So I think I'm going to take my dock my
    back. Nice fine. Well I'm putting this message up on droid. Do any of u get a lag while typing on this site or others?

    I won't be keeping the Body Glove b/c of the fact that I want to use the GPS mount, so I may return it for the Desktop dock. They're basically the same price....

    It might be nicer to make one myself, but I simply ain't got the time right now....

    Also need to fab the speaker holes mod into the GPS mount for clearer voice....

    Nice find - but it doesn't charge the phone, so the dock is a must for me. Kinda hard to put it in that position and charge the phone at the same time....

    Thanks! I just downloaded the app! I usually charge my phone at night so this is perfect and OP just saved me $30 :)

    One thing though.....my home page is stuck in the landscape position. Did this happen to anyone else???

    You have to run the dockrunner again to 'exit' it.

    And how are you going to charge it with the charging port being on ht 'bottom' when in dock mode?

    I'm not propping it up.....it lays down on my nightstand, which is fine. As soon as my alarm goes off, I pick up the phone to look at e-mails that have come over at night, as well as the weather. It works fine for me.

    I ended up uninstalling the app to see if my home page would go back to portrait mode. Nope. So I took out the battery and it seems to be ok.

    It's late so I'll play with the DockRunner app tomorrow at work :)

    G'night all.

    When you click on the little house icon in media mode (with dockrunner) it takes you back to a 'stuck' landscape mode. All you have to do is run dockrunner again in this 'stuck' situtation and it auto corrects it.

    Couple of options here, you can go to Settings > Sounds & display > Screen timeout (at the very bottom).

    I have the actual charging stand so i went to Settings > Apllications > Development (at the bottom) and clicked Stay Awake. This allows the screen to never sleep while charging.

    Your third option is the "ScreenModeWidget" from the market. This havs 3 options and one is to never let the screen sleep.

    Pretty cool app. Worked great for me and no issues. Only thing I could see being a problem is you still probably want it plugged in on a night stand because the backlight will stay on all night.

    works cool, using it here at the office as a clock...but im kinda scared to leave the screen on the whole time......

    - market being the key word.

    Good point - hence the fact that the dock is also a charger, to prevent battery drain and power off.

    So true. I have a hard enough time with the battery as it is - having to charge every night b/c of 1) School's location in the boonies, and 2) me being a Twitter addict....
