Mike, just so you know, because we all have to learn this, it's not considered good manners to jump in on someone else's thread (post) with a different question than was started.
Now, that being said, I believe the answer to you question is, no, you cannot stop the phone from going to sleep in a holster that has a magnet in it. The magnet was built into the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) case for this purpose.
If you use an after market case, they generally don't have the sleep function and no magnets in them.
What highguage is trying to tell you in the last post is, why would you want the phone to stay awake when all it is doing is powering down some functions to save battery life ? Like he said, if you use the "Profile" settings on your phone (the little speaker icon) usually found in the upper left side of your home screen, you can set any and all your profiles (Loud, Vibrate, Quiet, Normal, Phone Only, or Off) to do anything you want to in, or out of the holster.
1) If you scroll your trackpad/trackball to the "Profile" icon and click on it you will see the current profile you are using highlighted. Usually Normal by default.
2) Scroll to the bottom of that list and click on "Advanced"
3) Push the Blackberry menu key
4) Scroll to and click on "Edit"
You will now see a very long list of things that the phone does or does not respond to when it is in this profile.
If you scroll to and select one these, say Phone for instance, you will then be able to select what you want it to do, (none, tone, vibrate, tone & vibrate) next line select the ring tone you want to use, next line select volume, ect.
You keep going until you have everything alerting the way you want it to in or out of the holster.
Remember, all these profiles are set by default to reflect pretty much what their names say, so you shouldn't have to make too many changes to get it set the way you want it.
Just be sure to find what it is that you want to be alerted to (email, sms text, etc) and set it to what you want in the profile you are using. Also remember if you change profiles, say from Normal to Loud, be sure the alerts in that profile are set to what you want. You will have to do this in each one as you use them.
Edit: Mike, I just had a thought that you might have confused "Bedside Mode" which is a setting within the Clock App that put the phone to sleep at night so your not disturbed by anything you don't want when sleeping. That has nothing to do with the magnetic case, and can be turned on, or off as you please.
If that is the case just Google search "Blackberry Bedside Mode" and you will see many articles and videos on how to use it and set it up on your phone.
