Motorola Droid :: Screen Timeout - Will Not Turn Off Spontaneously?

May 22, 2010

Having a problem with my Screen Timeout setting. Every so often (at least once a day) the Screen Timeout setting will change so that it's not set to anything (no bubble filled) and screen will not turn off spontaneously. It, in fact, seems to turn the screen on when this happens. I find the screen on when I had physically turned it off. This is wreaking havoc with my battery life.

Motorola Droid :: Screen Timeout - will not turn off spontaneously?

Motorola Droid :: Screen Timeout - Where To Shut Of Screen While Charging

Dec 13, 2009

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.

Motorola Droid X :: Screen Timeout Changes On Its Own

Sep 21, 2010

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?

Motorola Droid X :: Screen Timeout 2.2

Sep 23, 2010

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?

Motorola Droid :: Screen Timeout After 1 Minute

Mar 22, 2010

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.

I'm having an issue with screen timeout setting.. It keeps resetting it self. I'll set it at 2 mins, and go back in and nothing is selected.

Motorola Droid :: Screen Timeout In Car Home?

Nov 20, 2009

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.

Motorola Droid :: Screen Timeout / Sensor?

Nov 8, 2009

I've read through the deluge of threads that have sprung up since Friday's Droid release. However, I have only seen this issue listed within longer conversations about frustrations. I wouldn't call this a frustration as much as I would a quirkiness of the Moto Droid that I'm hoping some similarly-annoyed person out there has developed an app to overcome this.

The issue is with the screen lock and the auto-dimming on the phone. The first issue with the lock screen is not a device-specific issue as far as I can tell, but it is insanely annoying not to have a lock timeout setting within the OS. I should not have to unlock my phone every single time the screen dims from the timeout setting. Every other phone I've ever owned that has a screen lock does not have this limitation and, if someone were to mention that the iPhone has the same issue, I would point out that they suck.

As for the other issue, and the far worse one, how in the world is the proximity sensor when on a call so damn finicky!? I have read this complaint multiple times on various forums, but no concise list of solutions. The screen goes black when you have the phone to your ear, but when you move it away from your ear, the screen should *consistently* re-light so the user can have access to the keypad, etc.. This is not working at all as I would expect. I did find an app in the marketplace that allows you to set the screen timeouts by application, but if I set it to not timeout on the phone app, the screen will stay lit when I have the phone to my ear, which would defeat the whole purpose.

This seems like a huge bug to have missed in all the testing that occurred before releasing the phone, especially for such a basic feature. I expect customers to go nuts on Verizon for this one (my fiance is far from a technical user and has the Droid and has yelled at me to "fix it" referring to this problem..

Motorola Droid X :: Screen Timeout Just Doesn't Work?

Oct 3, 2010

I have suspected this on every ROM I have run (stock 2.1, all tranquility roms, and now rubix 0.3 (which I love except the single unexpected shutdown of the phone once).

My screen just doesn't turn off no matter what the settings/display/screen timeout is set to (30 sec, 1 min...)

I test it by turning on the phone, sliding to unlock and then staring at my homescreen with a stopwatch. It can be 5-10 minutes before it turns off.

I have interrogated with spareparts and the phone does have a high percentage of "running" from bluetooth and wifi, but isn't the screen supposed to shut off even with those background processes running??

I don't have anything special installed for power management, just stock stuff.

I went to the market and found some power managers but I don't have any confidence a third party app will solve this problem.

Motorola Droid :: Screen Timeout Setting Keeps Changing

Apr 11, 2010

My Droid keeps losing the setting for screen timeout. It resets to no option being selected, which means about a 5 second timeout. I have to reselect 30 seconds, etc. I can't seem to find a pattern of situation leading up to it. Started on 2.01 and continued after 2.1 upgrade. Never rooted.

Motorola Droid :: Gmail Notification And Lock Screen Timeout

Nov 20, 2009

I made the switch from the (surprise) iPhone on the day of release to the Moto Droid. I really do like the phone, but there are 2 consistent quirks that I can't find an answer to after searching Google and many many forums.

1. Lock screen timeout. This one really annoys me for some reason (probably just because I feel like it's a waste of battery life). So I have the screen timeout set for 1 minute, so if I have the phone unlocked, and I don't use it for 1 minute then it locks itself (fine, good). BUT, if I have the phone locked, and I just hit the Home/Lock button on the top of the phone to see the lock screen, WHY does the lock screen stay on for the same amount of time (1 minute) before going off again??? If I don't unlock the phone, I just want that screen to turn off quickly, maybe in 5-10 seconds.

2. Gmail notification. I have 2 gmail accounts (1 for school, 1 personal), and it's the only mail I use or have set up on the phone. All I want to have is a notification of gmail in the taskbar so when I hit the Home/Lock button and see the lock screen, I can tell if I have gmail or not. I DON'T want the LED to blink if I don't check or delete the mail (turning LED gmail notification off). (Having the number of mails would be nice too, either in the taskbar or on the home screen, or optimally, both).

Motorola Droid X :: Navigation Spontaneously Switching Screens

Jul 16, 2010

Just starting to play around with the new X. I tried the car dock on my first trip with nav without having the charging cable plugged in. Nav seemed to stay on the turn-by-turn screen just fine, except that the screen kept timing out (as expected running on battery). Today I also plugged in a charging cable. Nav started out working fine, but then several times during my trip the X inexplicably switched away from the turn-by-turn screen to the directions screen (or to the "maps" top-down screen). I didn't see anything in the options, and can't imagine why the thing would be switching. Also, I just updated to the latest Google Maps application (last night, between the two nav tests), so maybe that had something to do with it....

HTC Droid Eris :: Eris Home Screen Jumping Spontaneously

Jun 4, 2010

This is driving me crazy. The phone is pretty much useless when this starts happening. I will be on the Main home screen and then it will start jumping Home screens as if I'm swiping to the left but I'm NOT swiping! Once it is on the last screen to the left it won't let me switch back to HOME. I can almost never do anything when this happens. I haven't dropped the phone. I've reset the G-Sensor. Has anyone experianced this? I've even done a Wipe of the device.

But my screen is blank, i picked my droid up and hit the power button, the M comes up and then going into BB's quickboot, then it goes blank, i try again, same M then quick boot, then blank. NOw nothing, i cannot get the screen to turn on for the life of the phone, plugged in or not.Its dead...... The white light comes on when i have it pluged in right under the usb port, but im so sad, i have an original release day droid thats been running great and working with ulv kernals like a king, i was runnning in the 1700's for mflops, 1366 in quadrant, im hurt....i dont want no stupid refurb....Is there anything i can do, what does a phone do when its bricked? are these signs of being bricked?
