Desk Clock / Alarm Clock


Oct 4, 2011
Hi all

I was just wondering, is there any way to stop the desk clock from sleeping and switching over to the floating clock display?

I have tried settings/programs/development/stay awake while charging but this doesn't seem to make any difference.. it still flicks over to the floating clock eventually.

Failing this, or actually.. even better, is there any way of customizing the floating clock (i.e. font and brightness)? The reason I ask is that I use my phone as a bedside clock in its dock during the night. The Desk Clock mode would be fine, but the floating clock is too dim and difficult to see.

I am aware of 3rd party alarm clock apps, but I'd prefer to use the built-in app if possible :)

Thanks in advance from a new MIUI user!
