    Sometimes I want to keep my phones screen on until I turn it off (ex, when im using a stop watch app). Is there a way to create a shortcut on my homescreen that will turn off screen auto close?

    I am pretty sure switchpro has this option for one of its toggles.

    Until you find a better method, plug your phone in and enable the, "Stay Awake," option in the Settings > Applications > Development menu. That will keep your screen from turning off, but you have to stay plugged in afaik.

    I may be misunderstanding but I just go into settings and change my screen timeout option.

    I use this app from the marketplace and I like it a lot. You can select what apps you want to keep on during their use. When you finish using the app, it defaults to the timeout schedule you have set for your screen.

    Screen Mode Widget! It's free and will toggle your screen between auto sleep, auto off, and always on.

    I also use Screebl and consider it a MUST HAVE. Screebl will keep your screen on as long as you are holding it and when you lay it down, the screen will go off. You can set preferences of varying angles and screen timeouts, but I just use the defaults and it works perfectly. I bought the pro version to support the developer, but the free version does exactly what it says.

    I only need to use Screen Mode widget if I want to override Screeble and keep the screen on when it's lying flat.
