The issue with the unit going to sleep 3 seconds after the screen times out also happens when I am streaming NPR audio. Where do I allow apps to keep unit awake? I still don't think that the system should go into sleep so soon after the screen time out. The time for system sleep should be independently user selectable & I can't find out where to set this. I have tried playing MP3s with the PDplayer & it keeps the system awake. Cheers,kev

x3. I noticed the same with Pandora -- if the song is a certain length, it goes to sleep. I seems to be somewhere in the 3 or 4 minute range.

I guess, if a solution doesn't come soon, I will have to set my screen timeout to a longer interval, but I think 30min is the max. It needs a "never" if it also puts the system to sleep!

I am using smartbar on the navigation bar.. It has a very customizable set of functions. One of it's options in quick settings is to change the timeout value. I used it to set mine to 45 seconds not an option in the android timeout screen. There is an option to set it in terms of minutes. I just changed the timeout to 45 minutes. I haven't tried it but in theory you could set your time out hours using smartbar...I know this is not the real solution you're looking for... but hey something is better than nothing.

OK, have smartbar running. Thanks. I like it better than BarControl. More options. I was hoping that it would function without the power-off/cancel dance, but, Oh well. BTW is there no hope for independent screen timeout (power saver mode) & system-sleep time out? They should not IMO be the same. I know the unit comes out of sleep quickly, but it is still not right, for one reason, it happens with the unit plugged into AC. Again IMO ( See my signature)Cheers,kev

This of course is all related to an OS initially designed for cellphones and not computers. Google needs to have some install options for tablets, set top boxes, and netbooks if they really do intend this to be something other than a phone OS. We don't need all the phone dialing crap, but we do need better WiFi, sleep, time-out, and external port controls for external storage. Right now, we're dealing with an OS that thinks we're using big phones and nothing else.

I agree! Does Froyo or Gingerbread show any signs of accommodating the tablet? Google needs to step it up, if they want to play! Kev
