Default Turning Bold on while on my desk?

Please Login to Remove!

I just got the Bold and am going through the usual process of getting used to a new device. With my old BB, I would have it sitting beside my office laptop, and it was always on, so I could see incoming emails (my BB got emails quicker than did my laptop office computer).
With the Bold, I have it plugged in to my laptop in order to keep the battery charged up, but it has a black screen.
Yes, the LED light does flash when a new message arrives, but the screen stays black. So, I have to press the trackball to activate the screen.
Is there anyway of keeping the screen on while it is connected to my laptop?

Yes, do a search for BBLight, or it might even be a sticky in this forum. BBLight can be set to keep the screen on while charging.

Sorry to be hazy on the details (I don't use it any more myself) but I'm fairly certain it can do what you want to do.
