    Is there a way to keep the screen on with the EVO while it is charging?

    I have searched and cannot find an answer, any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Yep... though it's hidden in an odd place.

    APPLICATIONS -> DEVELOPMENT -> STAY AWAKE (screen will never sleep when charging)

    There are widgets out there as well that do this.

    why? wouldn't that just slow down the charge process?

    I found that setting, but it does still dim the display.

    Do you have one that you would recommend?

    It would, but I ask this because I have a dash mounted car charger from ProClip that is a super quick rapid charger so I am not too concerned about the speed of charging.

    I am more concerned about the display staying on while in the cradle.

    Thanks for all the input from all of the posts, but I still need a good solution.

    If I ever need to keep the screen on (like I'm transferring a large file over wifi), I just open up my web browser since it's set to Keep Screen On. So it stays on and never dims. Before that, I just opened up any game that would force the screen to stay on like Puzzle Attack.

    Umm... is there a reason you're trying to do this? Is it in a car dock and you don't want it to turn off? I haven't used the Car Panel app myself, but that will force the screen to stay on.

    I know of 2 pay ones but haven't adventured through all the free widgets to find any.

    Extended Controls
    Pro switcher

    search for those two using appbrain.com and it may suggest others that may be free.
