Bad To Leave Screen On All Night, Every Night?
Loving my Droid, and went ahead and got the multimedia dock. I'm thinking about replacing my alarm clock with the phone, and just dropping it in the dock at night. Love the alarm clock function. My question, though, is, does the screen stay on ALL NIGHT when in the dock? If so, is this bad for the device, the screen, etc? I realize burn-in isn't an issue, but will I seriously reduce the life of the Droid if I use it in the multimedia dock at night, rather than put it on the standard AC charger? THanks.

These things are like any other screens, they can be used for thousands of hours without running the risk of burn-in.
But, in the event of burn-in, you can always fix it by having a all black screen on to wipe it clean.

+1. You can:
1. Worry about it.
2. Not worry about it.
3. Turn the screen off since you're sleeping anyway and not worry about it.
The alarm works just fine with the screen off (how I use it). How long do you intend to keep the Droid for anyway? You're likely to replace it before "wear" is an issue.

You probably won't own the phone long enough for it to matter. I use mine as an alarm clock with the multimedia dock. You can dim the screen and it goes into a screensaver type mode with a clock that bounces around the screen.
