    If I left my iPhone plugged in and leave the screen on for the night, would it damage my battery or my screen? If you don't know what night stand is, it is an app that leave the iPhone screen on and there would be a clock that shows you what time it is and set an alarm clock for the whole entire night

    I believe there are some apps which do the same, but don't require the screen to be illuminated, you can always just press the wake button to see the current time with or without.. As far as Alarm Clock goes, still, some will just run as your iPod is in "sleep mode" and wake you up... Without being illuminated until the alarm goes off.

    well "sleep cycle alarm clock" turns off the screen when you turn it over for the night, so yea that app would probably do the same

    You can just use your pre-installed apple clock

    just set the timer or alarm and put ur ipone to sleep
    when the times come it will ring up

    since no one is really answering your question, I'll give it a shot. i have also always wondered this. i don't think that it will mess up the the battery since i keep my iphone plugged in all night all the time and its fine. it says this in the battery health and maintainence (or whatever its called) thread. i think it might mess up the screen though....i never liked the idea of keeping it on for like 8 hours straight. maybe it might faintly burn in a little logo or something, idk, but i just think its a bad idea.

    if you leave the screen on the image will be burned onto the screen, some pixels might get stuck to
