N8: How to have screen light on for longer than 60 seconds

[ Edited ]

How to have screen light on for longer than 60 seconds?

 

Come on!

 

This is killing me! My Android phone had it so you could choose even longer than a minute.

 

I often browse/read stuff, and it is incredibly annoying to have to push the screen all the time just so it wouldn't go dim. I feel like a moron doing it.

 

Is there a workaround or a trick since Nokia thinks we are not mature enough to choose our own light-off delay?

N8 / RM-596

I am having the same problem. I wish nokia will alow us to change the time out longer than 60sec. I don't want to purchase an apps in the ovi store. They should fix it in there next software update. It is very annoying when reading long article. If Nokia N8 is to behave like a PC then I don't see any PC that have a time out in 60 sec or less. This is a bug and I think they should fix it.

Agree 100% that Nokia should provide this in their software.. but calling the current issue a BUG is wrong.. If something doesn't work the way its designed for then 'Yes'.. but in this case the phone / software is not designed that way..
