    I am sure this is a really dumb question but it is driving me crazy! I use the app forscore on my iPad2 for playing pdf versions of sheet music. How do I set my iPad2 so the screen doesn't go dim and then dark while I'm playing? I am tired of having to tap the screen every few minutes to keep it bright while playing. thanks. Frank

    In your iPad's Settings app, under General - press on Auto-Lock. The bottom option is Never and if you select that, your iPad screen will never dim (or shut off, for that matter).

    For battery saving purposes, I'd recommend you put the Auto-Lock back on when you are done reading music...

    Hope this helps.

    Tell the developer to do it from the app. Onsong handles this beautifully.

    Good news...the app has a setting that turns auto lock off while in use and then resets auto lock when the app is shut off...Frank
