While connecting phone to PC the notification message with options to pc-mode, devel-mode, charge-only options times out far too early and defaults to charging mode.

I would prefer to have the notification staying there until the user choose an option or tap somewhere else on the screen?

Right. Or maybe beam the message to notifications, currently it is lost and I have to unplug-plug the phone. Which shouldn't be the case. It's so... analog.

Does this happen when the screen was off? As I cannot reproduce this when the screen is on.

I start with a locked screen (off) plug usb to PC (in my case a linux box), then after a second or so, a notification appears with options for pc-mode, developer-mode, charge-only. Practically, the duration of that notification is very short to respond, I doubt it lasts more than a second, then screen goes off again.

@pmelas - Yes, if you plug your USB in from idle, then you get about 1 second to make a choice. If you scroll down to your apps, then plug in the USB, the notification stays until you make a choice. or your backlight times out.. I'd be more inclined to say this is a 'bug' and if you agree, add [BUG] to the beginning of your title and tag it as well. It certainly isn't a feature! :)

Since 1.1.4.x / Äijänpäivänjärvi the display should stay on longer if usb cable connect triggers mode selection dialog.

downloading USB Switch from the jolla store should solve the problem by directly giving a menu to change to desired modes.
