    Ok, so i wanted to use my HTC for an alarm clock because then i could save the electricity that my old alarm clock uses.

    BUT..

    Sometimes i wake up and have a look at my alarm clock but now i have to reach over and get the phone and press a button to get it to light up...very bright in the middle of the night.

    SO....What i was thinking.

    If i buy a charger stand for my hero is it somehow possible to tell the phone to run the screen lights on lowest light setting when it is charging...

    This way i would be able to se the clock without being blinded.

    IF this is not an option would someone please pass this on to google/htc as a request or tell me how i do it.

    I believe there is an app in the market called bed time or something. it displays the time in a red low-res digital image all the time just like an alarm clock. i'm not certain of the name though.... you may have to dig.

    LOL!!! I was going to post a reply but couldn't think of the name of the app...
    Bed time clock, LED clock, Nightclock....all good names :)

    It's a good app...now stop charing your phone ;)

    Fantastic....Downloading now from app store..

    Thanks a bunch guys..

    EDIT : Damn....Fine program but it does not seem like i am able to rotate the screen. It will only show the time in tilted mode and i wanted to put it in a charger cradle where it stands up right.

    Just use your alarm clock, it probably uses the same amount of electricity as your charger anyway.

    You are probably right but since i have to charge my phone regardless it will still be money saved as far as i can see.
