    I was thinking to use my Playbook as a calendar in the kitchen live updated by anyone in the family. I do have the playbook rapid charger on a stand. I have some questions before I try

    1. Is it OK to have it always on, on a charger stand? No dangers?
    2. I could make a google calendar or outlook etc - what is best?
    3. What app is best to have a calendar, always on?

    Hopefully we can add on appointments, reminders etc from our phones, various things for everyone to see on the Playbook display .

    Thank you!

    To address #1 . I keep my PlayBook on the charger stand 24 x 7 at work. It's running the "Alarm Clock" app which prevents the screen saver from kicking in and the time is visible all day. I often listen to music and use the calculator on it. I do press the power button when leaving each day to turn off the display. Been doing this for months now with no issues. A while back I took the PlayBook off the charger to see if the battery still held a charge and it did.

    Haven't done a calendar on it, so I can't address #2 or #3 .

    Thanks! Bill

    Thank you Bill, very helpful.

    Can you clarify how to keep the screen from shutting down?
    I'm trying to find the alarm clock app - would you know who is the developer is so I can search for it on BB world and download the correct one!

    If I have the calendar on all the time with the alarm clock running in the background, will it still stay awake?

    Can the alarm clock app make it go to sleep at certain times and wake at certain times?

    Many thanks.

    I used mine as an alarm clock for a little while, but I also noticed that with a clock always being displayed, I would get temporary burn in on the screen. So eventually I stopped doing it in fear that it might become permanent.
