    I used a program for BlackBerries called "Leave It On". Very useful for golf apps to always have the screen displaying information during a round, or to have the clock remain on during the night without the need to press a button to see the time, etc. The developer of "Leave It On" (Shaosoft) appears to develop apps only for the BB OS.

    Does anyone know of a similiar program available for android phones?

    Thanks in advance for the help . . . .

    That program looked like it would work . . . but it didn't !! After installation I set my screen timeout for 1 minute - after 1 minute, the screen went dark. Reset screen timeout to 10 minutes - again, after 10 minutes screen went dark. I don't believe I have any other programs interferring with "Screen On" such as JuiceDefender (disabled for this test). :(

    Sooooo . . . . I'll continue searching. Thanks very much for the suggestion. :eek:

    Tasker is supposed to let you automate things - so if you launch a particular App, Tasker can change the timeout on the Screen. I have not tried it yet, but it seems very powerful.

    I did some more testing with "Screen On" before deleting the app. It appears to work with AT&T Navigator and my 2 golf apps - SkyDroid and FreeCadie Pro. It DOES NOT work with the Samsung "Desk Home" application.

    No problem - I'll ditch the "Desk Home" app and find a decent (and simple) alarm clock app.

    Thanks much for the help . . . it's appreciated. :)
