If you ever wondered if it’s possible to keep screen from blanking/locking while the device is plugged into a charger, the answer is yes, it is possible, without any additional apps. Only the setting for this is strangely placed. To enable this feature, go into Menu → Settings → Applications → Development and tick “Stay Awake”. That’s it.

yes, but the screen still dims after the timeout period has elapsed. i need a way to keep my phone fully awake and bright fpr using the map in the car
@ivan: it’s not a perfect solution, but you can use “Screen never timeout” toggler from “Toggle settings” app – it prevents the screen from dimming.
Thanks so much for that.
ahhhhh thanks ive been looking for this for my Cricket huawei Asend
You could also use the app “tasker” and create an event to never dim the display when a certain applikation is running
