Default Can Bold Be Set To Stay On When Charging?

Please Login to Remove!

I did a search but never found any information on this topic so I am starting a new thread.

I know you can get your Bold to stay on while it is in the charging pod by setting it to display the clock while charging.

My question is this:

Is there any way to have the Bold stay on, but display the home screen, or whatever screen you were just looking at last, when it is charging? I have been through all of my Bold settings and did not see any way to enable this.

Please let me know if it is possible or not. Thanks!

You might be able to use the 3rd party app called BBLight. Not sure it works on the Bold, though.

When you hook it to the charger and the clock screen comes on just hit the back button and it goes to the home screen and stays there.

"maybe" you can do what you want by going into Applications then Clock then Options then for the When Charging: field, change the chosen option from Display Clock to Do Nothing instead, and then save that change

good luck

When you go into Clock, hit the BB button and go into Options. At When Charger, change it to do nothing
