I was going to try this on my N7 (got the update this morning) until I remembered I moved all my wallpapers to Google Drive. Doh

Fail! Should be full screen with no on-screen buttons while daydream mode.
On-screen buttons cause a huge screen burn-in,
Really noitceable when watching a movie with the screen rotated upsidedown.

There are no on-screen buttons in daydream mode, just the very very faint grey dots that replace the buttons when you're doing stuff.

I'm talking about the huge black bar!
It leaves a huge black bar at the bottom.
I didnt known i would have to explain this to some in PA
If it was a amoled with no backlight in blacks then it might not be a problem. (I have heard of bad amoled burnin)

So you're saying the black bar will burn in the screen? That's a new one for me, never heard of the color black causing screen burns.

Sorry, obviously I should have know that you were trying to say that a black bar somehow causes screen burn when you said "Should be full screen with no on-screen buttons while daydream mode.
On-screen buttons cause a huge screen burn-in"
How could I ever have misinterpreted that?

Look i was wrong to put onscreen buttons instead of bottom black bar but if this is a LCD screen, all blackbars will leave a burnin.
I dont know about AMOLED

It's an LCD screen. Why didn't you just look that up? You're on a site where you are all of a couple clicks away from that info. It's also all over the internet, including other tech sites and Wikipedia.

Shut the f**k up. Leave PA.

This is very similar to a function of the HP Touchpad when placed on the touchstone.

Daydream mode? More like webOS Exhibition .... Matias Duarte is stealing little by little, but I honestly think its good. This proves that webOS was an amazing product, and all it needed was proper care.

"when docked" Did I miss something? When did the N7 get a dock?

One BIG issue with the Daydream feature is that LED notifications are automatically turned 'off' while Daydream is active. If it wern't for this bug, Daydream would be an otherwise excellent 'screensaver' . Fix this Google!

Try the WatchIt! daydream - it will show any notifications or toasts from any app, including the FULL text of the expanded notification when available. Very useful IMHO.
