    It is no secret that the Froyo update we are using has a different docking app. (Nexus One?)

    Two interesting things:

    1. There are dock settings now (Audio settings greyed out & docking sound)

    2. I'm not opposed to the new look - however, is there any way to keep it on screen? The stupid green screen saver appears after a while, and I can't read it at night (yes I'm blind - but that's why I like the old Motorola one so much)

    I posted this same thing an hour or so ago. So far can't find anything. I downloaded Alarm Clock Pro V2 though instead of using the one with Froyo which stinks.

    That's weird...I actually like it better because I found the old white on light blue really hard to read. Green on black is much easier.

    Green on black is not bad if it was larger and didn't move around. Also, I like being able to see my notifications without taking the phone off the dock.

    I am going to try this 3rd party app as I want that screen saver to go away.

    funny how they gave us "dock settings" and no ability to set the screen saver on/off or timeout settings in the dock??

    anyone know of a root option to stop this?

    Time for a developer to create us an app like the original moto dock app yet improved.

    Tap the screen and the screensaver goes away, as someone already mentioned.

    However, it would be nice if there was a setting that allowed us to disable that screensaver....

    Tapping the screen works but I need to have it stay on the other screen so that I can see if my wife or kids send me a text message.

    There has to be a way to disable it, right?

    Also, I still didn't see a way to select all emails so that they can be deleted.

    I wish someone would create or port the OLD app on froyo. The large clock was the reason for the dock purchase. Really not liking the new one...even with Alarm Clock V2.

    To get the screensaver to go away while in the Multimedia Dock, go to Settings->Applications->Development->Stay Awake, looks like it dims somewhat but isn't going black on me.

    I just keep an eye on the notification light. It still works like it always did.

    That does it for me too! Thank you! Dims slightly but still viewable.

    Damnit, nevermind. It took awhile longer but eventually it does go black.

    Really? Mine's been fine on its own for at least 30 minutes. I'll have to let it go idle longer than that to see what I get. I wonder if the Dock screen is part of it, I had my music player up and then my text window up when I ran the test.

    Settings->Applications->Development->Stay Awake

    I did this when I first had the problem (i.e., right after getting froyo). It doesn't stop the media dock screen from going all screensaver on me.

    If I have the music player on, the music player stays up indefinitely. But somehow, this setting does not stop the dock (standing alone) from going to the screensaver.

    (I can't believe there's no app for this -- it certainly seems like the sort of thing a developer should be able to do.)

    ah man, i hope someone figures this out or makes an app. I have to agree, the fact that I can't see notifications when it's in the dock is irritating as heck. I wouldn't mind being able to tap the screen so it went to the black and green at night when its by my bed side, but at my desk I need to see when notifications come in and I'm not going to tap my phone every 30 minutes just to check it. how frustrating.

    i'll be keeping an eye on this thread for a solution.

    The CM6 Version I believe has options for this; unfortunately, none of them can turn it off completely. Max timeout is 60 mins. Not only does it have options to set the timeout duration, you can change the color of the screensaver itself.

    Default CM screensaver is, naturally, cyan. This was too bright for me at night, so I went with a stock-ish green, but much more dim.
