[Android] Disable screen timeout when charging

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.

  1. 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

  2. @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.

  3. You could also use the app “tasker” and create an event to never dim the display when a certain applikation is running
