DC prevents screen for sleeping during downloads and playback

Just wondering if anyone else was experiencing this? When DC is updating & downloading, foreground or background, or when playback is started, it will not allow the screen to sleep. I'm using a myTouch 3G, cupcake, and the latest version of DC. I can manually sleep the screen by pressing the hang up button, but it won't let the screen shut off on its own.

Screen dimming

When downloads or updates are in progress the screen is set to be dim, and not off, as you are saying. It's been like this for a very long time, because I remember having some problems with the network connection dropping when didn't keep the type of lock that keeps the screen dim. It didn't really make sense to me the time.

I only do downloads when it's on power, so it isn't an issue. But I definitely see how it could be a problem in other situations.

I'll take another look at this. I should be able to get the screen to stay off.

I created a mantis issue for this -

Thanks for posting.
