Sums it up but leaves me confused. Do you wish to have the backlight stay on in the holster? What other aspect of the sleep function do you wish to disable? I assume you realise that the 8700 stays in full data contact when "sleeping".

buy a cheap case/holster with no magnet?

but i wonder why you would want it not sleeping?

Make all the settings the same - so in holster and out of holster are identically configured.

Title may sum it up, but I am flunking new math, why do you want this?

my question was prompted by the fact when I am at work and put my 8700 in my Seido holster with the screen facing out I dont have to remove it from the holster to look at a email.

I only do this while I am in meetings or sitting at my desk and its not clipped to my belt.

That's actually a better explanation than I thought was possible to that question.
I just tried putting my 8700 in the Seidio holster backwards for the first time. It doesn't fit very well. Anyway the Seidio magnet is so strong that it turns off my Blackberry from 3 inches away. Short of installing a lead shield or digging out the magnet with a pocket knife, it's going to turn your unit off.
And no, there is no way to disable that function.

Why would anyone want to expose there screen like that?
