    I'm using it as a data display in a race car. However, I can't seem to find a setting to allow it to stay on all the time.

    I have it maxed out at a 30 min timeout, but I need it to stay on all day. It screws up the connection to my data unit when it goes to sleep.

    There has to be something on there I haven't found yet that will keep it from dozing off on me.

    If you have a "developer options" in your settings there is a box to check that will keep the screen on while charging

    Get the Red Eye app from the market. That app will keep your tab fully awake and prevent it from going to sleep.

    Thanks guys. I'm going to try the red eye app.

    Oddly enough, I don't have the developer option to keep it on while charging.

    Long story short, they sent me some generic foreign market tablet that did have the option to stay on while charging. It was a MIDI brand or something like that. Junk....

    I already have the S3 phone so it made sense to go with their tablet and return the generic one.

    Appreciate all the info.
