Prevent Android CM 7 from Sleeping While Charging

In this quick tip, I will show you how to make sure your CM 7 Android phone will charge without going into sleep mode. Having the screen not sleep while charging can be helpful for numerous reasons. I keep hearing this question over and over, so if you don’t know how, follow along. Here I’m using a Droid X.

Click the Menu button, then tap settings and swipe down to Applications.

Once there swipe down to the last option which says Development. Check the box that says Stay Awake and you are good to go. Now your screen won’t sleep while charging.

    Thanks for this post. Very useful. Btw, what app did you use to take these screen shots? Mine is a Lenovo A369i and I am still searching for a good app that takes screen shots easily. Please help.
