Power source sensitive power options

Since I have had my 710, I have noticed that the power saver options do not consider the power source. We all know the 710 is hard on batteries which makes the automatic suspend mode a necessary feature, but I think there should be an option to let it remain awake when on external power without the user having to dig through the menus to change it.

I like using my 710 to seek out a single point destination far away (like a search base or Geocache)--starting out in turn-by-turn and ending up in point-to-point--and I find when it's in the vehicle and plugged into the cigarette lighter that I have to reach over and turn it back on every 20 minutes.

The most desirable option would be to allow the users to select the power options for each state, on-battery and plugged-in, then the 710 would automatically switch power options based on whether or not it's plugged in.
