is there a way to set screen timeouts to specific apps? For instance, when running navigation, can the screen time out be set to never timeout just for that app? I only want the screen to stay lite for certain apps.
I bought myself the HTC Wildfire about a week back. I have a few questions regarding the wallpaper and the lock screen resolution.
The Wildfire screen resolution is 240x320. What should the ideal resolution be for my lock screen and wallpaper images?
When I set a 240x320 image as wallpaper or lock screen it appears very pixelated. However, when using resolutions of 640x480 and above, the wallpaper looks great but the lock screen is still pixelated. Also, when selecting the lock screen image I can't select the whole thing. Parts always get cropped.
Somehow the HTC backgrounds that are present on the phone don't look as pixelated although they are of a lower resolution.
When i recently installed an app (Launcher Pro) and i wanted to restart my phone to clear everything an restart all the services, so i held down the standby button and selected shutdown.Whilst it was shutting down i was turning the screen on and off (really i dont know what i was doing) and it came up something similar to what i found here but it didn't shutdown just went straight to that screen.Accept it didn't say s-off, (and had a little android robot skating )
I have the screen timeout set to 1 min which works fine until I use the phone. When using the phone the screen times out (and locks) in about 5 seconds. This is a real pain when using voicemail etc and you need to interact with the keypad.
I posted this in the Support and Troubleshooting forum but didn't get any replies, so I thought I'd post it in the main forum.Hopefully some of you guys/gals/aliens (illegal or not, I don't mind) can help me out with this one.
I was messaging around today and found where to shut of the screen while charging, but I wanted to turn it back on and can't find where it is? Also before the update I could have sworn there was an option on the screen timeout to set it to never. Now I don't have that option.
I finally had a chance to try the Google Maps turn by turn navigation, and i love it, but i got one problem.
To save on battery, i keep my phone display timeout to 2 minutes. The problem im running into is when the screen times out, it kills the navi and i gotta restart it....very annoying and sucks if a turn is coming up
Does anyone know a way to keep the screen from timing out while either plugged in, or in the Maps app?
I saw a while ago on here an App to toggle screen timeout but whilst screen was on it would dim if not using which I like the idea of. I cannot remember what it was called can anybody help? At the moment I am using 'Toggle Screen Timout' which is great but does not dim.
I've always had my screen timeout set at 30 seconds and I haven't installed any app recently that I would think messes with this setting, but twice now in the last two days my screen timeout has gone to "never."
I did a search but found no solutions to my problem. My screen timeout changes on its own. I usually set it for 30 seconds or 1 minute. Occasionally I notice about 2-3 times a week that the screen never shuts off and when I check my settings it is set at never. Any idea why its doing this?
My upgrade to 2.2 went very smooth. I do not have many of the issues people are talking about. I have one minor issue. I have my screen timeout set to 1 minute. About 3 to 4 times a day the setting changes all by itself to 15 seconds. Has anyone else had this problem? Or any suggestions on how to keep it set at one minute?
This is going to seem like a straightforward issue, however when listening to music/podcasts the sound will cut out when the screen times out. Is it supposed to do this as I would have thought the screen could timeout to preserve battery whilst music was playing?
I'm having a problem with my screen timeout - nomatter what I set it to, it soon afterwards resets back to 30 seconds. I've tried 2 minutes, 10 minutes etc. and it might work immediately, but not long afterwards it gets reset.
The only thing I had running that I thought might possibly affect it was timeriffic, but I've deactivated that now and its still happening.
And yes, I know that apps like screenmodewidget and Screebl can be used to work around the problem, but I'd rather fix it!
Just setting up the display profiles on my phone....does anyone know how to change the screen time out for different scenes.....eg when I'm using my phone normally I want the display to timeout and lock etc, but when the phone is on charge at work or in the car I never want it to timeout.
Changing the timeout setting seems to apply for all profiles.
I have a UK 3 Hero and am running Screebl. I set the screen timeout for a minute but it keeps reverting back to 15 secs. I am changing the time in the phone's settings and Screebl's, but it keeps changing back.
So I have my Screen timeout set the way that I want it (10 minutes) and it works fine except for when I'm on a call. The screen will go blankafter just a few second, even if I have the keypad on display and using voice menus and such.
Is there a way to keep that display going when I'm on a call - no timeout or long timeout?
Went through the settings and cant find out any ways to turn screen timeout off. Mainly I dont want a few apps to time out when I use them, like Pandora. Went through a few apps and haven't found one that really works yet.
My HTC One's screen is timing out after about 5 seconds. By timeout, I mean going black and I have to unlock the phone to get back to where I was.
Initially, I removed Battery Doctor and I thought this solved the problem, but the issue it returned. Occasionally, usually after I've uninstalled something, it goes back to around 15 seconds, leading me to believe I solved the issue, but then issue returns.
I've gone through the following motions:
Settings > Security > Lock phone after - set to 3 minutes
Settings > Display, gestures & buttons is > Sleep - set to 15 seconds.
Over the weekend I restored my phone completely, which appeared to work at first, but now it's back to timing out abruptly.
As I've typed out this message, it was constantly timing out, then in the middle it did stay awake several times for about 5 seconds, then dimmed, but still stayed on for around 10 more seconds before blacking out.
I would like to keep the screen timeout set to the default 30 seconds to save battery while the phone is not charging. However, I'd like to increase that to at least several minutes while the phone is charging. I don't want the screen to be always on it just doesn't seem like the best thing for the life of the phone. Could be wrong, it just feels that way.Is there any setting or app that would allow this?
I'm not much of an OP man but I've been struggling with this for awhile so I have to ask.
Menu > Settings > Sound & Display > Screen timeout
We all know the setting, but when I change this to 1 minute it ALWAYS goes back to 30 seconds for some reason. I'm not sure if it's after a reboot or not but it's annoying as hell. As I do appreciate the help please don't tell me about screenmode widget or any widget to KEEP the screen on as this is not what I wan, I want it to timeout after 1 minute not 30 seconds.
Running BB V0.8, one of Chevy's Kernels, some good apps some bad.
So when I have my Droid docked in Car Home mode, the screen will stay on when in Navigation, but will timeout as it normally does when I'm just in Maps (ie: if I just want to follow my movement without turn-by-turn directions) or when I'm on a call. For the life of me I can't find screen timeout options specific to Car Home.
Is there a way to separate the dimming vs. sleeping timeout? It appears that if I set the screen timeout to any value, it dims first, then sleeps. I have the "never sleep when charging" setting checked, and what it does when charging is the screen dims, but the moment does not sleep. Is there a way to prevent the dimming while charging?
