    Is there a way force the screen to stay on when charging but timeout to 1 minute when not charging?

    Goofy place for the setting isn't it... should be under sounds & display. I don't why they think its a development setting.

    I can sort of see how its a development option. If your debugging something, you don't want the phone to fall asleep. But your average user would not know to look there, since it doesn't appear to be a development setting.

    Because when it's plugged into your computer and you're doing some development/debugging, you'd want your phone to stay on since you'd likely be doing something on the computer for more than a minute. Then you don't have to keep waking the phone every time you go back to it. That's my guess, at least ;)

    I prefer to have my screen stay on while plugged in since I often use it at work that way. If I want the screen off, I'll just hit the sleep key. I guess I see the option being more general than a "dev" setting. Surely it is useful to development, but I would think it is more of a mainstream feature... maybe I'm in the minority.

    I agree, I was just trying to come up with some sort of justification for it's strange placement in the settings, haha...

    I'd like my phone (HTC Legend on 2.1) to stay at full brightness whilst it's charging (with "Stay Awake" checked) but after a minute or two it always dims to about half power. Is it possible to set it to stay on full brightness permanently?
