This is sort of related to this thread - How do I? Keep the screen "always on" while charging?
I'd like to have the "bedside mode" like the original Droid has or my BB had. For example, on my old BB Storm, at a certain time the phone would go into bedtime mode. If on the charger, the clock would display dimmed and all sounds, except calls would be silenced.
I can't even figure out a way to manually make the clock stay on the display when the phone is charging.
Any tips or apps?

Not sure if this is what you're after, but i tried the free 'Night Clock' tool from the Market.
I set the color to red, and set it to dim: you can swipe one way across the clock display to make it brighter, and the other way to make it dimmer. I like it. However, until the Samsung charger dock is back in stock, I'll have to lean the Captivate against a couple of books stacked on the nightstand for easy checking during the night. Landscape mode gives bigger numbers (too bright for me) than portrait orientation (just right).

I'm back - after some experimentation, I find that Night Clock drains 40% of battery life overnight! I guess that's not surprising since the screen is on continuously. I can't wait for the cradle/dock to come back in stock so i can use the clock in the Desk Home app.
