Screen Never Timeout Missing

2012-09-12, 13:32 PM


After i have upgraded to ICS, i don't see 'Never' when setting screen timeout option in SmartActions.



The options is useful when putting the phone in car mode for navigation.



 



Is it just me?

I have the Atrix HD, but when in car mode, my screen does not timeout. I don't use SA for this.

I have the Atrix HD and the screen is timing out. I had to get back to a program called settings profile to correct. Not sure why it does that.

 I used to use it to prevent my phone from sleeping while in the HD dock.  While playing Pandora (possibly other music apps as well) and the screen times out in mirror mode the music stops playing through HDMI and instead through the phone's speakers.  Forget if it happens with webtop as well, but mirror mode is more effective for quickly launching an app.

@tagrat - at least you got it fixed. That is good news.

I don't have the car dock. So as a workaround, I am setting display always on when charging. But the screen still darken though. frown

Here's what I did as a work-around:



I enabled my phone's setting to keep my screen on permanently. In each of my Smart Actions, I set a sceen timeout EXCEPT for the ones where I want it to stay on permanently. It's backwards, yes, but it gets the job done until they make the Never option available again.
