    Anybody know if there is a widget available deals with screen timeout? When I'm at my desk, plugged in to power, i like to be able to leave my screen on. I know I can just set the screen timeout to "never," but that requires going through a few more steps to get to the setting.

    I'm just looking for a widget that will allow me to get directly there with one click. Or maybe if anybody knows of a shortcut I can take to get there that might already exist on the phone? Thanks.

    It's not a widget, but if you go to:

    Menu > Settings > Applications > Development

    There is an option for "Stay awake" that will prevent the phone from sleeping while charging.

    You can still use the power button if you want to put it on to charge and don't want the screen on, but this will keep it from turning off automatically.

    There is a widget at the play store but I can't post links? Just do a Google search not a search using the play store.
