HTC Incredible :: Screen Dimming And Phone Locking

Jul 28, 2010

I recently made the switch from a BlackBerry Curve to the HTC Incredible. One of the "features" of my Curve that I'm having trouble duplicating on the Incredible is this: I was able to set a timeout to lock the phone and a separate timeout to blacken the screen. That is, if the screen went black after 30 seconds of inactivity, the screen wouldn't necessarily lock until 30 minutes of inactivity. I have increased the screen timeout on my Incredible, but the screen doesn't dim at all. I tried installing the No Lock application, but now I can't find a way to manually lock the phone if necessary.

Motorola Droid :: Screen Dimming At Random Times While Using Phone

Nov 10, 2009

My screen will randomly start to dim as I'm using it to say scroll through contacts or texting and the screen will go to like 50% brightness. Is this a bug because why would it be dimming if I am using the phone?

HTC Incredible :: Phone Keeps Freezing / Locking Up

Apr 29, 2010

I've had to pull the battery out three times now because the phone freezes up seemingly randomly when I use the browser. Haven't experienced this while using any other apps. Is anyone else experiencing this? Hoping this will stop happening or a new ROM will fix it.

General :: Prevent Phone Locking - Not Bypass Lock Screen?

Feb 25, 2012

I've tried so many app's over the last couple of days that claim to stop the screen from locking but they have all just bypassed the lock screen... Well, they've tried to anyway. These kind of work arounds don't actually stop my phone from locking in the first place though.

My phone is a W008+ iPhone clone with Android 2.3.3. When it's charging, the screen will time out and switch off; But it doesn't lock. So I can hit any key to bring the screen back on and as it wasn't locked in the first place, I'm taken straight back to where I was.

When not charging, I get the same behaviour for ~2 or 3 seconds... Any longer and it locks forcing me to use the power key and swipe the lock screen along with any other security measures I may have in place.What I'd like is to be able to set the 'lock' timeout in the way that I can set the 'screen' timeout.How far will I have to go to get this functionality?

Is there a setting I've missed? I'm very new to Android so there's lots I don't know yet.

Are there any app's that can really do this? Maybe this would need a root app?

Samsung Moment :: Screen Dimming Vs. Timeout

Apr 15, 2010

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?

General :: Cyanogenmod - Why Can't Turn Off Screen Dimming

Apr 23, 2012

I have recently installed cyanogen on my desire and have found the mod to be an absolute joy to use. The one irritation however has been the automatic screen dimming. Every 6 or 7 seconds or so the screen dims itself. This can become very annoying when reading long messages or any other text. Surely there must be a simple solution to turn off this automatic dimming setting?

HTC Droid Eris :: Screen No Longer Turning Off / Only Dimming

Dec 12, 2009

My Eris has been working fine with the screen timeout. It is set to go off at 1 minute. But since last night, it's only dimming the screen now. It will not turn off unless I press the end call button. It hasn't been doing that, so I'm not sure what's going on.

Android :: Dimming Before Phone Shuts Off / Need To Stop It

Nov 21, 2010

I've read all the posts I could find. I just want the phone to never dim. The option to have it shut off at 2 minutes is perfect. I just hate the dimming that happens before it shuts off. I have tried screebl but is completely disables screen off timer. I just want it to stop dimming and just shut the screen off according to the display timeout. It dims reguardless of manual or automatic brightness. I don't want to disable the screen off timer either. IF I leave the phone on at the table and walk away, I do want it to turn off in 2 minutes.
What can I do to just keep the freaking phone from dimming yet still shut off with the timer?

Motorola Droid X :: Locking - Screen Time Out And Screen Fade Out

Jul 18, 2010

Is there any way to change when these 3 things happen separately? Can I make it so my screen fades earlier but still takes just as long to go completely black? Is there a way to extend the time between total blackout and locking? Is there a way to turn off auto screen lock all together but keep the auto fade out and auto black out? I am always able to remember to manually lock the screen and the auto lock is annoying but I still like the power saving of the screen fade and black out.

HTC Desire :: Locking The Screen Via Touch Screen

Jun 19, 2010

Anyone know of a widget to simply lock the screen or put into sleep mode by pressing something on the screen rather than pressing the power button on the top of the phone. Tried looking around and unless I'm missing something (I am particularly good at missing the obvious!) there doesn't seem to be anything that does just that. Anyone know/come across anything that will do this? Does anyone know if this might be included in 2.2?

HTC EVO 4G :: Touch Screen Locking Up

Aug 31, 2010

my Evo's screen will lock that I mean the phone continues to function if I get a call or text, but I can't press any buttons or anything else on the screen (I'm still on v2.1). I can press the Power button and it brings up the power options dialog, but I'm unable to select any option or dismiss it. Usually if I wait a few minutes the screen will eventuall unfreeze and allow normal operation, but on a couple of occasions I had to pull the battery. Coming from the Palm Pre I'm used to this kind of crap, but I was hoping I left it behind me. Is there a way to reboot the phone just using the hard keys (i.e., some combination of Power + volume)? This would be an acceptable fact, I would pay for an app that would turn the Power button into a "power off" button with a long press (hold the key down for 10 seconds and it turns off the phone). Otherwise, this is just annoying, but so far I'm living with it.

Is there a way to do this in certain situations? Eg, if I'm playing music in the car I'd like it to stay "alive". Also, this morning I put google maps on to track my route but my screen kept locking. I know keeping it on will kill the battery but I'll be charging it at work via my laptop most days anyway.

HTC Hero :: Blank Screen Not Wake Up / Locking Up

Dec 5, 2009

I own a hero on orange with the latest orange firmware. Over the past couple of days I've been having a few problems, mainly with my messengers from what I can see. Sometimes when using ebuddy or meebo, my phone's screen will go to standby (blank) as normal but will not wake up or do any functions. I have to take the battery out of the phone and reboot. I tried re-flashing the firmware just incase but it still does it. I'm trying out hi msn to see if that is any better. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and also does it sound like a firmware issue?
