    Default Note 2: Stay awake while charging

    Looks like the 4.3 update got rid of developer options mode where I was able to keep the display awake while charging....is there any other way to do this?

    Do you see the Developer Options at all? If they don't show up at all, you know the trick, right? Go to Settings>About Phone, and tap Build Version about 7 times.

    Yes, in 4.4 Kitkat that feature was removed. I guess you could adjust the screen timeout of the device by going to Settings > Sleep and select 30 minutes (maximum)
    The only downside is that you have to interact with the device every 30 minutes to prevent the device from sleeping.

    Or you could set the device to daydream while charging. If you disable the lock it's like it stays awake.

    Was it only removed in the Note with KitKat? Because I still have that feature on my 2013 Nexus 7 running KitKat 4.4.2.

    Try in About Phone, tap rapidly on Build Number on the bottom. There will be popup text that says "you are 4 steps away from being a developer!" So rapid tap 4 more times and then tap back key, and Developer Options should be back in Settings.

    Oops, initially "rapid tap" on Build number 4 times. That's when the popup text indicates tap 4 more times. 4.4 KitKat Another joke Google played on us. They're reminding me of my cat.

    And yes, you can set the phone to stay awake once you can access the Developer Options. Maybe they hide it after a while for those of us who don't go in it after we first see it because I remember it being there in Settings when I first got my Nexus 5.
