update: a cleaner approach is discussed here

Hello everybody,
I made this app, which takes a screenshot of the nook every 1:50 minutes and saves it to /media/screensavers/ScreenshotSaver.

the idea:
When the nook goes to sleep after 2 minutes of inactivity, instead of showing a useless screensaver, keep showing whatever it was doing so I could keep reading my book/grocery list/map/whatever, without waking up the nook. Thus saving both battery and annoyance.

usage:
the app launcher simply toggles screenshots taking on and off. State is maintained between reboots.
On the first run it also creates the folder /media/screensavers/ScreenshotSaver, so after the first run you should go and change your screensaver to ScreenshotSaver.

I hope someone would find this thing useful.

source can be found here (github).
download app from attachment.
