DONATE TO ME
Default [APP] Screen Off

This is my first WM app that I've developed about a year ago and I thought I post it here maybe someone else will find it useful.

This application simply turns off the screen on the device, without putting it to sleep. I use it to save battery when i connect my phone to the PC to sync or to copy large amount of data.

It was tested on HTC Touch HD with WM 6.1 and 6.5.3.
It DOES NOT require .NET Compact Framework. Just install the cab and launch the shortcut from Programs.

Remark: Some programs, usually media players, use a backlight keep-alive feature. Be sure to turn off this feature in order for the Screen Off application to work.
* iGO8 users, check out this post by Tom Lenferink. It worked for me. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...98&postcount=7
* For TOM TOM, check out this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=412321


Enjoy!

Sweet. Just what I need. I need the GPS to keep running while turning the screen off to save battery power. Until now I have been using SVM Power Manager.

EDIT: Is this new app automatic like the power manager, or is it user initiated?

mpf, i think i must not do something right because it doesn't work for me.

WiFi is on, s2u2 is off, no screenlock on, in the settings i unchecked "shut down if no use during ...

in the first 30-40 seconds, no problem, it all works fine, and after a minute or so, hop, wifi is off.

Nice one! I've needed something like this for riding my motorbike with TomTom in my ear and phone in the pocket.

Is there a way to disable the touch screen as well? I also have the problem that the screen gets randomly pressed kicking me into TomTom menus and/or out of the app entirely. It would make this the best app ever...
