    when my Eris is plugged into a car charger. I hate having to change the setting each time I get in or out of the car. I would even settle for a widget that allowed me to toggle this setting. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Yeah, if he stays awake he can take his phone out of sleep mode whenever he wants to.

    screebl is the ticket. Can set it to keep the screen awake when on a call or can set the screen to stay awake when it is at a certain degree of angle (ie goes to sleep when it is flat but stays awake when it is held in hand or propped up on something to watch a video). Set it once and forget it.
