complaining that there should be an Android developer option called "Keep screen on while ADB is connected", I hacked up a quick prototype app to do just that.

github.com/cketti/AdbScreenAwa

The app uses a NotificationListenerService to check for the presence of the "USB debugging connected" or "Wireless debugging connected" notification. When an ADB connection is detected this way, a WakeLock is acquired to prevent the screen from turning off. The WakeLock is released when the screen is manually turned off and re-acquired when the screen is turned back on.
