    I hope someone can help me with this problem. My Droid keeps losing the setting for screen timeout. It resets to no option being selected, which means about a 5 second timeout. I have to reselect 30 seconds, etc. I can't seem to find a pattern of situation leading up to it. Started on 2.01 and continued after 2.1 upgrade. Never rooted.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Do you have screenmodewidget installed and did you update it recently? That was messing with the timeout times for a while. It was fixed but the latest update (that I did not install yet) seems to be doing it again according to comments in the market.

    You probably have an app that's changing it behind the scenes. Look through your apps, anything that has the permission, "SCREEN_OFF_TIMEOUT" is suspect.
