    From the home screen, go to Menu > Settings > Display > Screen Timeout

    Remember that the longer you set it the longer the screen stays on regardless of you using the device or not. If you finish reading an article or using the phone, be sure to power off the screen manually so you don't let the screen on, which could in turn reduce battery life.

    Also, as long as you keep scrolling on the screen before it times out, the 30 second rule should not apply. When you see the screen dim a bit just touch it or scroll up/down and back to where you were reading and the 30 seconds starts over.
