Is there a way to keep the display "ON" whilst the device is plugged in?

I am running Android 2.2 Froyo on Samsung Galaxy S.

This function is missing in Froyo 2.2 update 1. – Cooler77 Jan 13 '11 at 19:35
@Cooler77: I see it on my Droid. What device are you using? – Al E. Jan 13 '11 at 19:35
Does this limit "Stay awake" to when the device is plugged in, or will it also keep it awake when it's on the battery? – Nathan Fellman Jan 31 '11 at 6:28
@Nathan Fellman as the feature description says "Screen will never sleep while charging" – mlevit Feb 1 '11 at 11:35
