Thanks for the reply. I like that the Gmail notifications are dismissed if I've read them on another device, that's real nice. I'd like to rephrase my question with this sequence of events:
1. Screen off
2. New Gmail, NoLED mail icon comes up
3. Read Gmail on other device
4. NoLED recognises this and turns off mail icon (dismisses itself as you put it)
5. Screen turns on
6. Screen turns off after default timeout
Now, at Step 5, is there a way to ensue that the screen dos not come on since it was not on at Step 1? In normal usage, while working at my computer for instance during the day, I see my phone screen switch on every now and then (because of what I've described above) and hence my question.
Yes, I understand that I could turn off NoLED while I'm at my desktop using the timing feature (I use do it overnight), but then I'd need to turn it on when I step away for a meeting etc. which doesn't really work.
Hope this clarifies my question. Thanks again and FWIW I've donated to you, there's no reason why this should be free.
