I noticed something else.
I hooked up a MHL cable (Bought long ago for the HOX), to test some response times etc..
And I could not turn of the screen when it was connected (well it turns off, then immediatly turns on again).
Would be nice to know if anybody knows a way to turn it off to conserve battery.
Also I have never used any wireless methods, and am keen to know if one can stream something with the screen off.
This is however a question for a different thread, sorry OP!
I have not changed anything in smart connect, and my screen lights up when put in the dock (just like the Z did).
When I turn it off, it does stay off though.
