    I'd like to keep my Treo 650 screen on while charging. I want to use the Media application's slideshow feature to cycle through my saved photo's. Do you think that any damage can be done to the screen by keeping it on for hours at a time?

    Unlike the T3, there is no option to keep the screen on in prefs. Unless there is a 3rd party software that can do it, no is the answer.

    Would also be interested in the answer to the original question, which I believe is still unanswered.

    My understanding is that the LCD screen is not prone to burn-in, so you should be fine. Nevertheless, logic would dictate that it would be better for the screen to stay off.

    If I'm repeating what someone has already said look at how long the thread is and ask yourself if you really expect me to read the whole thing.

    FYI for anyone watching this thread. It seems STOIC works as expected ONLY while charging--- at least, that's been my experience. I'm off now to try the others posted. Thanks!

    I like to use splashclock for this.

    Interesting...I use STOIC and it does not always stay on, but I've never associated it with going off when fully charged...I'll have to pay attention to that! For those who have tried various programs, which works best? I've not been impressed with STOIC. Thanks.

    No idea about the damage, but PalmaryClock can do what you want.

    Greetings,

    Has anyone tried one of the programs listed above on the Treo650.

    Some of the applications listed seem really old.

    Also, I second the question about screen burn-in.

    A friend bought me one of those cute beach chairs made for cell phones.

    I would like to paint a face, like in notes or something and have it sitting on the chair on my desk at work and while plugged in only, be on showing the face.

    As far as I know, it is not possible to 'burn' a LCD screen, nor can I think of any reason that the screen (or the rest of the Treo) would be at risk from being on for long periods of time. It might be a bit warm when you pick it up (because the Treo won't circumvent the battery and go straight off AC, it pulls from and charges the battery simultaneously, creating a bit of heat).

    It also seems that if you are cycling through the pictures that you are creating your own screen saver even if it was subject to burn in. If you just leave it on for 12 hours with the same stuff on the screen then I might consider not doing that regardless.

    I use OnCradleOn and it works perfectly. It doesn't matter if the battery is fully charged, or not. If it's plugged into the charger/ cradle, the screen will stay on when turned on.

    Question: What media application has a slideshow feature?

    The stock media app will do this, if you have the app open you will see and icon in the bottom right corner that looks like three squares stagger stacked on top of each other, selecting this will start the slide show. The options for the duration each pic is shown is set in the menu prefs in the media app.

    Thanks! I didn't even know this was an option! I need to go through my manual a little more.

    Manual? The best way to learn how it works is to open it up and start poking around (software-wise, of course).

    And make sure you have a good backup.
