    Went through the settings and cant find out any ways to turn screen timeout off. Mainly I dont want a few apps to time out when I use them, like Pandora. Went through a few apps and haven't found one that really works yet. Anybody have any luck?

    I did, but when I had Pandora selected to stay on it still dimmed and then shut off like it normally does. Not sure why it didnt work. Going to try installing again to make sure it wasnt an error installing.

    ***Update: Reinstalled and set my time out to 15 seconds.
    Selected apps that I didn't want to time out.
    Didnt work after reinstall so rebooted phone.
    Worked so set my phone timeout to 2 min like I normally have it.
    Didn't work again so rebooted my phone.
    Works now.

    Seems like any changes made to screen time out or to Screen on need to have a full phone reset. Also, Screen On needs to stay running once the phone is turned on so it needs to be exempted from any Task Killer app.

    Hope this helps people who want to eliminate screen timeout on certain apps.

    sounds like Keep Screen works better. it always works and never requires a reboot.

    Look under applications - development and you can force it on when plugged in.
