    Hi. One of my favorite things about Motorolla, Sony Ericson and other simple phones, is that their screens are always a reliable and quick time teller because their screens are on with a clock on it(with and without backlight), even after they've been key-locked.

    I am looking for an application that will make the Treo show the time when I lock the device.

    Does anyone else see the practical application of such software?

    Can it be done?

    That's one reason why so many folks around here use KeyGuardTime+: a quick tap of one of the four app keys after the screen's gone blank (and Keyguard's kicked in) displays the time, date, battery level, signal strength, etc.

    Although I do see it as handy, won't this lead way to serious battery drain issues? Even with the screen dimmed...

    You mean KeyGuardTime+? No, it doesn't drain the battery.

    well the OP indicated he wanted something that could keep the time. Not necessarily referring to KeyguardTime+ as it turns off after a set period of time...

    KGT+ "keeps the time". One really doesn't want an app that causes the screen to be "on" all the time; that would indeed run down the battery. KGT+ really does what he wants, he'll just need to tap a button to check the time (and then the screen will go dark again).

    Thats exactly what I want. I want to have my screen on with a clock running, keylock on, and backlight off.

    Just like how the cell phones have it.

    I don't care about the battery drain, I have an extended battery, car charger, and if needed my standard battery pack.

    That was originally what I said earlier, the OP looks like he DID want something on all the time like a regular cell phone... Which would drain battery.

    Palmary has a setting to turn the clock on when the power is off by pressing a button. Otherwise I am not sure.

    Fine. Then KeyGuardTime+ is what you want: the clock runs with keyguard on and the backlight off; since the backlight is off, you can't see anything - so you tap one of the app buttons to display the time.

    I guess I don't get why you actually need the screen to be on (even if the backlist is off, it's very difficult to see unless held at the right angle), the whole time? Is it for that reason, so you don't even have to press a button to see the time? What happens when you actually want to turn the backlight back on and have to go through multiple keypresses to do it.

    For me, the screen is off, I press the red phone key, Keyguardtime+ pops up with the time (keyguard enabled), then the screen turns off, shove it back in my pocket, and that's it.

    Hi. One device i know that has an effective backlight off/screen on 24/7 is the Sidekick.

    http://www.jeffraysbrain.com/images/...and_screen.jpg
    That screen is always there.

    Why would there be multiple key presses involved to get the screen unlocked? I dont see why the screen can't just return to its previous screen where it was locked before the clock grapics were initialized and backlight was shut off.

    I don't see why there can't be a picture background also, like in this photo here of an idle sidekick.
