    So I use my Eris as a GPS from time to time and when I do, I do not want the screen to shut off automatically. I know how to change this in settings but what I want is a widget that I can keep on my home screen that will disable the screen time out, and then turn it back on again (the way the wifi short cut allows me to turn my wifi receiver on and off without going through settings.

    I do not think such a short cut already exists, I would happily write it myself, but not sure how to go about starting.

    Any suggestions?

    So apparently you really can find anything you need in the android market place

    "Toggle screen timeout" by cfl

    Still would not mind learning how to program for android.

    I am NOT a programmer, but I'm pretty sure a majority of these apps are written in Java....

    I use Screebl lite to keep my screen on when its in the upright position when I am using it as a GPS or just reading. I hope this helps! :)

    Screebl Lite

    Package name : com.keyes.screebl.lite

  5. Quick Settings for me. I would guess you would have to download the SDK to learn how to program for Android.
