    Disable Auto-Lock and Install ScreenDimmer.

    Disabling Auto-Lock will basically leave your screen and back lighting on until your battery dies. That by itself is a bad idea so here's where ScreenDimmer comes in.

    ScreenDimmer will give you the ability to set the time you want the back light to stay on.

    Get what I'm saying?

    And yes, you have to JB your iPad to do this.

    ^ Interesting. Does this have any effect on battery life?

    Extends battery life, actually.

    ScreenDimmer does a better job at saving power because you can set it to dim or turn off the back light after 5 seconds of screen inactivity. As apposed to 2 minutes without ScreenDimmer.

    ScreenDimmer is one of the best Cydia Apps out there, IMHO.
